Lycée Français board agenda does not include parent grievance letter

Board members with Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orleans charter school are expected to meet Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the school, 5951 Patton St.

The meeting agenda sent by the board to The Lens Sunday does not appear to include a discussion of the eight-page letter a group of parents sent to the board on Friday, demanding the ouster of two board members and a series of related changes.

The group, which has named themselves The Rebuilding Trust Working Group, asked in their petition to the board that they add discussion of their grievance to Monday’s agenda.
