A Blueprint: Building 21s Century Schools for New Orleans
School Facilities Master Plan for Orleans Parish
This document was created by planners hired by both the Recovery School District and Orleans Parish School Board who were tasked with creating a master plan to equitably and effectively distribute school facilities and capacity across the city. The report contains detailed future population estimates, a description of the community engagement process that was implemented, as well as final recommendations. The planners recommended a plan implemented in phases that includes building new schools, renovating some old facilities, and “land banking” numerous others to be either sold or repurposed.
