PORT ALLEN - West Baton Rouge Parish School Superintendent David Corona has received permission from the school board to seek architects' proposals for a possible expansion at Brusly Elementary School.

Corona told the board Wednesday he also plans to ask architects to draw a "footprint" for a new high school adjacent to Brusly High School.

The board is in the process of deciding whether to add up to 14 new classrooms to the school, which was built in 1993.

Board members say the school, which now has about 700 students, has been struggling with overcrowding issues for quite some time.

Corona said between 500 and 600 students are enrolled at Brusly High School. The "footprint" drawings would sketch out a facility that could hold about 1,000 students.
