Istrouma Senior High School which was founded in 1917 was recently taken over by the Louisiana Department of Education Recovery School District. After one year in the R.S.D. the decision was made to close the school. This school which is now predominantly African American was one of the first schools in East Baton Rouge Parish to be integrated by the school board. Istrouma High School which has produced elected officials, NFL players, countless teachers, doctors, and lawyer’s is now being thrown away like yesterdays garbage. The campus which stands as a living legacy of social improvement, growth, and excellence is being shut down after one year of poor performance in the RSD. Please stand with us against this injustice. Sign the petition to give Istrouma High more time to grow and improve!
