BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Recovery School District plans to relocate Prescott Middle School students to the campus of Istrouma High School effective this fall.
The move comes as the Recovery School District takes over the middle school, which is being operated this year by Advance Baton Rouge, a charter school organization.
Robert Webb, Jr., who will serve as Recovery School District-Louisiana's campus director at Istrouma High School once the district takes control July 1, said the Istrouma campus has plenty of room to accommodate Prescott's 300 students.
Kimberly Williams, Recovery School District-Louisiana's portfolio manager, says once the students are moved, the Istrouma High School campus will house sixth through 12th grades.
