High school alumni unhappy with merger plan
A group of L.B. Landry High School alumni is taking the state to court over plans to merge the campus with another high school, O. Perry Walker.
The Times-Picayune reports the case could be the first test of a law that requires community input on any changes in the way state-controlled schools are governed.
A lawsuit filed this week in Civil District Court accuses officials with the state-run Recovery School District of unfairly tagging Landry as a "failing" school and ignoring a statute passed in 2011 that requires the district to come up with a community outreach plan before deciding on changes in school governance.
