Evangeline Central Discussed at Evangeline School Board Meeting


 

 

      The Evangeline Parish School Board Wednesday received news that the state will begin reporting test results on parish alternative schools. Alternative Schools  were tested in the past but never reported by the state along with regular education classes.

     In Evangeline Parish, the alternative school is Evangeline Central in Vidrine with four programs operating. The school recorded an unsatisfactory score of 54.6.

     Evangeline Central includes the following programs:

     The Connections program targets at risk students or those 15 years old and have not passed the 8th Grade Leap test.

    The Alternative program is geared for suspended or expelled students.

    The Options program prepares students to take the GED while the SAAC program assists students with disabilities.

    Superintendent of School Toni Hamlin announced to the school board that 23 students are impacted by the score. Parents of those students will be notified in writing and will be given the option to remain at the school, return to their home school or move to an “A” or “B” ranked school. The only school with a B ranking is Basile which is at near capacity at the current time.

    In other business, Superintendent Hamlin announced that retirees of the state group medical PPO plan have been advised that they are being moved over to Blue Cross of Louisiana, a third party administrator. It was announced that the move will realize 20 million dollars in savings.

    In other action, the school board:

--approved the low quote of Cotton Construction of Katy, Texas of $91,179 for construction work at Vidrine Elementary to replace classrooms destroyed by fire earlier this year;

--approved the quote of Lemoine Insurance Agency for student accident insurance that includes a benefit for MRI coverage;

--approved renewing a two year contract renewal  for Greg Guillory , Assistant Principal at Vidrine Elementary.
