MARKSVILLE, La. (AP) - The Avoyelles Parish School Board has denied two charter school applications, including one that was recommended for approval by a third-party consultant. It was the board’s second time to deny both groups.

But this isn’t the end. Both groups can apply to the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education for a state-sanctioned school giving no authority to the school district.

The Town Talk reports (http://townta.lk/1AK6jxy) officials behind Red River Charter Academy announced on social media Tuesday their intent to move on to BESE.

The board also denied an application for Avoyelles Children’s Charter on Monday, going with consultant Kimberly Williams’ recommendation.

Williams said it was unclear what the school would offer that is unique from what schools in the district provide now.
