Parents could soon have a couple new options on what school to send their kids to.
A consultant is recommending the East Baton Rouge Parish school system approve the openings of two new charter schools. Eight companies applied to run charter schools, but one withdrew its application, and the school board is being advised to reject five other applications.
The board will discuss the applications at Thursday's meeting. It starts at 5 p.m.
