Audubon Charter School will discuss its plans for the Carrollton campus renovations at a meeting of the school’s governing board on Saturday, and its plans for the renovation and expansion of the Broadway campus at a neighborhood meeting Thursday, officials said.

Conditions at the Carrollton campus have long frustrated parents and school officials, and although the Orleans Parish School Board has pledged a refurbishment that will make the old courthouse “warm, safe and dry,” Audubon’s governing board and PTO are moving forward separately on repairs to the restrooms and lockers. The contracts for that project will be discussed Saturday, amid updates on the Broadway project and on admissions.

Meanwhile, preliminary work has just begun on the renovation and expansion of the Broadway campus, and the school community and neighbors have a chance to discuss the project with the contractor at 6 p.m. Thursday at St. Charles Avenue Baptist Church, 7100 St. Charles Ave. That project continues to be controversial, as some neighbors are suing the school over it.
