AMITE- Tangipahoa Parish school officials have begun the detailed planning necessary to implement a new student assignment plan starting next year.
    
The plan, which takes a school-choice approach to integrating the parish's schools, received approval in June from the federal judge overseeing the parish's desegregation case.
    
Maureen Terese, the district's new student assignment plan coordinator, told the school board on Tuesday that work is underway to set up an online enrollment process, finalize attendance zone boundaries and create maps, and determine what each school needs.
    
Under the new plan, the parish will be divided into three regional zones, each containing a variety of school options such as traditional community schools, magnet schools and schools with a science, technology, engineering and math focus.
