BATON ROUGE - The Recovery School District announced today Istrouma High School and Glen Oaks Middle School would close after they turned over seven schools to four private charter groups.

RSD officials said students from Istrouma would transfer to Capitol High in the 2014-2015 school year, which would be run by a charter group out of Washington D. C. called Friendship Public Charter Schools.

Glen Oaks Middle students would transfer to Crestworth Middle, which will be run by the Los Angeles-based Celerity Education Group.

Istrouma and Glen Oaks won't have any students in the 2014-2015 school year, but the RSD said they could house new charter schools starting in 2015-2016.

RSD officials scheduled informational meetings starting next week for parents at those affected schools. You can find a list of affected schools and the schedule for the meetings on the Recovery School District's website.

News 2 will have more on the changes announced today by the RSD coming up at 6 and 10.
