Shreveport Minister holds news conference on upcoming school

Posted: Updated:


Shreveport Pastor Larry Brandon is moving forward with the area's first all boys charter school.
It's called the L.L. Brandon Academy of Arts and Technology and it's expected to open next  fall.

On Tuesday, Caddo Parish School Board members gave the ok for the Bishop to move forward with his plans. Brandon spoke about his desire to help boys grow into productive men.

"Many of them are acting out because they don't have these challenges and I believe that we can aid and make sure these boys are challenged as it relates to arts. Challenged as it relates to education," said Brandon.

There are conditions that must be met before the school opens it's doors. Brandon has until March to elect a principal for the school, and come up with a plan for the building, as  well as an outline of the budget.
