Ascension Schools Delay Move Into Temporary Buildings

A push to get Ascension Parish students whose campuses were impacted by August floods into temporary buildings will not hit its initial target date.

"Our ambitious target of moving into temporary buildings on Feb. 3, 2017, is officially delayed. As stated in our video message (seen above) earlier this month, we experienced weather delays over the holidays that impacted the installation of temporary structures. We have been able to recover some of that lost time, but unfortunately, we are still behind schedule," said Ascension Public Schools superintendent David Alexander Tuesday.

"Due to the complexity of activity at each site, we cannot yet project a new estimated date. However, we do know that St. Amant High School's move will be delayed by at least one week, and all other schools will likely be delayed by more than one week," Alexander added.

The superintendent expects to have updated information about impacted schools by the end of the week. He says that could be found on the system's Flood Recovery Campus Status Report page.
