Tangipahoa adopts modified desegregation plan

AMITE - The Tangipahoa Parish School Board approved sending a modified plan of its federal desegregation order to a judge for review.

The new plan passed Thursday on a 7-2 vote.

The desegregation order stems from a lawsuit filed against the Tangipahoa Parish School Board in 1965.

The board's modified plan would redraw the parish's school districts to achieve a greater racial balance among all schools, which could move about 2,000 of the parish's roughly 20,000 students to new schools.
