Louisiana Connections Academy Charter To Open Today After Week-Long Flood Delay

BATON ROUGE – Louisiana Connections Academy Superintendent Lonnie Luce said the 2016 School Year will officially begin today, Monday, August 22, 2016, for all 2,100 students enrolled at the statewide, free virtual charter school.

         The start of school was delayed by one week due to the magnitude of the catastrophic devastation and loss of communication caused by the recent weather in 20 parishes. The one-week delay will not impact the completion of studies for the 2016-2017 school year, Dr. Luce said.

         Louisiana Connections Academy, a K-12 completely online public charter school, had many students and faculty members displaced due to the recent flooding and is working to insure all have gained replacement materials.

         "All our LACA families who need replacement materials should have contacted our helpline at 1-800-382-6010 for assistance by now," said Dr. Luce.

         The school's main number is (225) 372-8389.

         “I am confident that partnered with our school community’s hard work, this is going to be a successful school year,” Dr. Luce said.
