AMITE, Louisiana — The federal judge in the desegregation case against the Tangipahoa Parish School System has appointed an accountant to analyze if the district can afford to build three new schools in keeping with the current plan.
The goal of building three new elementary schools is to help desegregate student populations as part of the 2010 desegregation order.
The Daily Star reports (http://bit.ly/1Pl7PfI) U.S. District Judge Ivan L.R. Lemelle ordered the audit and appointed Michael Bruno, a certified public accountant, to the job, which the district will pay for.
Pam Dill, attorney representing the school district, said the defendant's counsel is analyzing the order before making a response.
