School Board Approves District Changes

Reapportionment for the Red River Parish School Board following the 2020 census involves 68 people.  Only District’s 3 and 4 are affected.  Other district lines remain unchanged.

The change will be made in the Crossroads area along Hwy 514 and Ferguson road.  It involves 68 residents who will be switched from one district to the other.

The board has been working on reapportionment for several months.  Finance Director David Jones reported to the board that this was the “cleanest plan in my opinion.”  He referred to the several options for realigning the districts.

Board member Cleve Miller said he had talked with the Police Jury and they were in favor of the same realignment.  That would make the school board and police jury districts the same in the parish.

The board approved the reapportionment plan on a roll call vote of 7-0.
