OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) - The St. Landry Parish School Board met in closed session for 90 minutes to discuss possible legal options in a federal court desegregation case considered to have been closed in 2011.

Attorney Bob Hammonds tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1EOesTE) the board requested a meeting with him Tuesday to go over potential strategies as the five-year monitoring period comes to a close at the end of the 2015-16 school year. During that five-year period, the federal courts have been monitoring the district’s progress on facilities and student assignments.

The board took no action Tuesday after reconvening into open session.
