School Board moves to action on security issues

Written by Aaron Williams on . Posted in Local

During the WBR regular School Board meeting for March, the board heard a prepared report on school visits that were made by Superintendent David Corona and WBR Sheriff Major Jerome Fontenot last month relative to security within the schools.

The report, prepared by Corona, who was not able to attend the meeting due to the birth of his third grandchild, indicated that several things about each school site were noted that could increase school security, and measures would be taken to assure that each site would be as safe as possible.


Corona: tax renewal very important to schools

West Baton Rouge School Board Superintendent David Corona said Monday afternoon that an parish residents will get the opportunity to renew a 15 mil property tax for the school system.

The tax, which, if renewed, will generate about $5.8 million per year for a 10-year period, which is used for operating expenses, including salaries, according to Corona.

“Obviously, renewal of this tax is important to our overall well-being as a school system,” he said. “I ask the voters to please give positive consideration to this renewal.”

The West Baton Rouge school system was recently upgraded to a “B” school district, improving from the “C” grade through the last several years.
