Forced Out

Students at Priestly Charter School will have to switch locations - from their classic 1879 school building in the LSU Footprint - in the middle of the school year:

The Orleans Parish School Board told Priestley school officials earlier this week that the school will move into a group of modular buildings at 4300 Almonaster Ave. over the Christmas holidays. Though the time limit may be extended, Priestley may use these modulars for up to three years, Priestley board President Dennis McSeveney said.

It warms the heart.

“My hope is that we can stay in this facility for at least three years while we continue our quest for a permanent site, preferably in a more historic, architecturally significant area of the city that can serve as a ‘laboratory’ for our students,” McSeveney said.
