It’s official. We are thrilled to announce our charter has been approved by the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) on the morning of December 2, 2015. The School Turnaround and Innovation Committee recommended our charter for approval, and today the decision became final.

Laurel Oaks Charter School will open on August 15, 2016 with 108 Kindergartners. We will grow one grade per year until we are an elementary/middle school serving students from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.

Providing an exceptional education is our ultimate goal. Our collective work has been leading to this final moment, and we still have work to do. We need you to support, share, and tell others of our success. Continue to be our champions as we move forward to provide an excellent education for every student. In 257 days we will welcome our inaugural class. This would not be possible without your support and commitment to providing high-quality options for families in Baton Rouge.
