NEW IBERIA, La. (AP) - The Iberia Parish School Board has purchased 22 acres for a new elementary school to help alleviate overcrowding of area schools

Superintendent Dale Henderson says the total cost for the school project is $13 million. The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1Oae59S) the board’s next step toward possibly opening the school sometime in the 2017-18 school year is hiring architects to design the 60,000- to 70,000-square foot building.

The pre-K to sixth grade school will be built adjacent to Belle Place Middle School. Henderson says the new school’s zone will likely include parts of zones for North Lewis, Magnolia, Daspit and Dodson Elementary schools.
