THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The Lafourche Parish School Board will vote Wednesday on purchasing property to build a new Chackbay Elementary School off La. Highway 20.

The nearly 19 acres of land just south of Highway 20 and Highway 304 will cost $505,000.

Officials say the existing school has become overcrowded and is often in need of repair.

Board officials say the new school opens up the possibility of consolidating Chackbay with Bayou Bouef (luh-BUF’) Elementary, also an aging building.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1xwSKOy ) school board members have been discussing new schools in Chackbay and Bayou Blue for several years.
