The International School of Louisiana governing board will discuss a proposal to lease a lot next door to their flagship campus on Camp Street for recreation space at a meeting at 6 p.m. tonight (Wednesday, Sept. 25).
The land at 1376 Camp Street owned by Coliseum Place Baptist Church would cost the school approximately $1,000 a month over the next three years, according to a proposed lease included with the meeting agenda. The land would be used for “additional recreational/playground space for Lessee’s programs, activities and events,” the lease states.
Growth issues at the Camp Street facility have dominated the board’s discussions over the past year, and Wednesday’s agenda also includes an item to begin working on a permanent facilities plan for the school’s future.
“We’ve worked on parts of a facilities plan before, but these parts were mostly related to particular issues that came up,” board chair Matt Amoss wrote in an email. The meeting tonight will be a Board directive for the administration to draft a long-term plan that lays out viable options over the next 5 to 10 years.”
The meeting will be at the Camp Street campus, 1400 Camp Street, and is open to the public.
