Welcome to the Richland Parish School Board
Majority to Minority Transfer Policy
As required by United States of America, Plantiff, v. Richland Parish School Board, Defendant, the school district shall permit a student attending a school in which his race is in the majority to choose to attend another school where his race is in the minority. All such transferring students are to be given priority for space being available. All such transferring students must be given transportation if they desire it. The time period for applying for transfers is at least 24 hours prior to the regular session board meetings for May, June, and July only.*
After school tutoring, remediation, and an enrichment program (21st Century Community Learning Centers) that your child may be eligible to attend will be available at the following schools: Delhi Elementary School, Delhi Middle School, Rayville Elementary School, and Rayville Junior High School. This program is free to families and free transportation is provided for your child.
I am aware that the Board recommends parents of Kindergarten transfer students bring their child to school for the first full week of the school year. I am also aware that this is a measure to avoid miscommunications concerning transportation and will help to ensure that children are accounted for at all times.
I understand that there will be some instances of school closure in the district that will hinder transportation of majority to minority students. In those instances, I will be responsible for providing transportation to and from school for my child.
*During an academic school year, any student accessing a majority to minority transfer may request a return transfer to his or her home school prior to completion of the fall semester. Return transfer requests made after completion of the fall semester will be denied. Only one return transfer per student will be allowed during an academic school year.
