Reduce the size of the Lafourche Parish School Board
This petition had 1,781 supporters
The Lafourche Parish School Board currently has 15 elected board members. It is the desire of businesses and residents to have the board REDUCED TO 9 MEMBERS.
In Louisiana, only two other boards have as many members as Lafourche Parish—Calcasieu and St. Tammany Parishes. Both of these parishes represent nearly double the amount of students and residents as Lafourche Parish.
Compared locally, Terrebonne Parish represents their district with 9 School Board Members, Assumption Parish represents their district with 9 School Board Members, and St. James represents their district with only 7 School Board Members.
Additionally, this reduction in Board size will save the Lafourche Parish School Board over $100,000 per year. Monies that can be allocated to additional teachers or direct services for the students
