LIVINGSTON PARISH - Starting Thursday, night two Livingston Parish high schools will be used for tech education classes.

Livingston Parish Public School System is offering free career tech education night classes for high school credit during the Fall 2018 semester.

The classes are for students who are seeking industry certifications or hope to gain valuable skills as part of their education.
