The Grambling High Foundation will be submitting an application to the state’s Board of Secondary Elementary Education for a Type II charter, after missing the deadline to submit an application for a Type III charter to the Lincoln Parish School District.
“We were still waiting on a piece of information and were unable to get the application in by the deadline,” said GHF president Gordon Ford.
History teacher at A.E. Phillips Lab School Kristina Kaasab said she is grateful for the opportunity her students were able to experience last week as they toured Washington D.C.
“We took the trip so we could study the city’s history, culture and beauty,” Kaasab said. “We visited so many historical sites like the Smithsonian museums, Washington Monument and Capitol Hill, which helped our students to make real-world connections to what we study in the classroom.”
