OPELOUSAS — The St. Landry Parish School Board approved a two-year lease allowing an Opelousas-area church to use a high school building for Sunday church services.
Our Savior’s Church will use a portion of Opelousas High School, beginning Feb. 7 at a cost of $1,250 per week.
The church will make improvements at the school, including new projectors, screens, lighting, flooring and stage repairs to the school’s auditorium.
The church will also provide new flooring, sinks, urinals and other repairs for four rest rooms in addition to repairing and maintaining the school’s parking lot.
Church officials told the board in October the move is temporary while a new church is constructed off Interstate 49.
In another matter, the board spent an hour and 45 minutes in closed session for Superintendent Edward Brown’s annual evaluation.
Brown received an overall score of 3.26 out of a possible 4.00 points, board president Anthony Standberry said.
