AMITE- The Tangipahoa Parish School Board has denied two charter school applications and tabled discussion on another.

On Wednesday, the board shot down applications for Life Preparatory Academy and Hammond Charter Academy. It deferred a vote on Tangi Academy until later in December, when a special meeting is expected to be called to discuss the charter school, among other topics.

The board only had Wednesday's meeting scheduled for this month.

Tangi Academy is a planned kindergarten through eighth-grade school in Hammond. If approved, it would use space at the African-American Heritage Museum in Hammond.
