Evangeline Parish School Board Meeting


 

        Ville Platte-  Redistricting was the main item of business Wednesday by the Evangeline Parish School Board. The school board held its first meeting with demographer Mike Heffner of Lafayette.

         Heffner had a power point presentation detailing each of the 13 member districts. Based on the 2010 census figures, the ideal district population is 2539. However, each district cannot deviate more or less than 5% of the mean population level. 

        The districts with the highest deviations are: District 5 in the Turkey Creek/Bayou Chicot area  with is  19 percent high and District 13 in the Ville Platte area which is 14% low.

         Heffner remarked that District 10 represented by Board member Arthur Savoy needs to be more compact in size. The current district stretches from Pine Prairie on the west all the way to Ville Platte to the south and St. Landry to the east.

          In addition, Heffner reminded school board members must approve a plan that maintains current minority voting strength. The school board has three minority majority districts in Districts 8, 12 and 13 primarily in the Ville Platte area.

          Heffner plans to submit maps with suggested changes to each individual board member for their review and consideration in the few weeks.

          The school board will need to adopt a plan by the end of the year and submit it to U.S. Department of Justice  for review.  The new plan will be used for the next school board elections in 2014.

         In other action, the school board:

--was notified that Assistant Principal Liz Chatelain has been named Acting Principal at Mamou High while School Principal Charles Hazard is out on medical leave;

--approved the lone quote of Lemoine Insurance Agency for general liability, errors and omissions and automobile liability insurance coverage in the amount of $162,494;

--approved the following meeting dates for the holidays: one meeting in November (November 14), December 5 and 19  and one meeting in January (Jan. 16).
