Board to sue BESE over funding

  // Monday, 11 August 2014 22:37 //

The Iberville Parish School Board Monday night gave the district’s administration the green light to file a lawsuit against the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education over more than $3.8 million in state funding the board believes is being unfairly allocated to a local charter school in the parish.

The board’s action came at the recommendation of School Superintendent Ed Cancienne, who previously called the opening of the Iberville Charter Academy “an intrusion on the school district’s rights and tax money.”

The charter school, which opened Monday, has been a point of contention for the board since its plans to locate in the parish were announced last year.
