2. How were the schools on the priority list chosen? The Lafayette Parish School Board reviewed the needs of all schools and prioritized those with the greatest needs, also taking into consideration some improvements already being made and other improvements that are being planned through normal operations.

3. What happens if the ½ cent sales tax does not pass? Without funds to construct new school facilities and add permanent wings to existing schools, students will continue to receive instruction in those temporary classrooms.

4. Are there any purchases exempted from the ½ cent sales tax? No tax will be collected on purchases of food or drugs. For more information contact Dr. Donald Aguillard (Superintendent) 337-521-7014.
