School leaders work to resolve botched charter school lottery

KENNER, LA (WVUE) - School leaders are working to fix a situation after a Jefferson Parish Charter School held a botched lottery.

The Jefferson Parish School System held a lottery for The Kenner Discovery Health and Sciences Academy but had to rescind their acceptance letters and hold a second lottery because of a system error.

Some who won the lottery the first time did not win the second time.

The school system announced Thursday all lottery winners would have a spot, as they plan to add an additional class for next year.

The item is on the board's agenda for approval next week.
