Plan for Pointe Coupee Central High to be reworked
NEW ROADS - The Pointe Coupee School Board has asked Superintendent Linda D'Amico to rework plans for Pointe Coupee Central High.
The superintendent's plan to transform the school into a college readiness and career academy met criticism Monday from school board members and several residents who all had varying ideas about the campus' future.
Several board members said D'Amico's plan lacked the extracurricular amenities traditionally found in high school settings while others expressed doubts the idea would attract a diverse population of students to the campus.
The future of Central High has been a controversial issue since its forced shutdown by U.S. District Judge James J. Brady.
Brady also asked the board to develop a plan for Central High to be approved by the court.
