LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - National Heritage Academies originally planned to open its second charter school in Lafayette Parish for 2015-16. Officials say it remains unclear when the doors will open.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1VpqXsd) the school was supposed to open in the fall in a new residential-retail development in Broussard. Construction was stalled in the spring because of new state education policies that tie future charter school openings to the past performance of existing sister charter schools.

The Louisiana Department of Education released the 2014-15 accountability scores earlier this month that showed low performance scores for NHA schools that opened in August 2014 in Lafayette and Baker.

Jennifer Hoff, NHA communications director, said the organization is considering its options.
