LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette Parish School Board could begin discussions next month on a tax proposal to pay for facility upgrades when the board receives an updated report on which of its schools are most in need of repairs.

Last week, The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1iu1Nep) the board’s Finance Committee approved staff’s recommendation that the board should consider asking the community to support a tax as a way to help fund school construction and improvements.

That recommendation goes to the full board Wednesday as an introduction item, so full discussion of the issue likely won’t happen until the board’s first meeting next month on Oct. 7, when the item appears on the action agenda.

Recently, the board approved a $126 million bond sale that will enable the construction of a new high school and other school projects.
