BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The new East Baton Rouge School Superintendent is still trying new things, as evidenced by Thursdays Lunch with Supe event.

The event is sponsored by the Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System. The lunch is a casual way for students to discuss what the school system is doing, and what it plans to do. Students and officials alike discussed high schools, and what to do with the Istrouma High School building.

Its been a year and a half, theyve been closed but three years now as a part of the Recovery District, Superintendant Warren Drake said. Theres not a high school in the 70805, and Istrouma is an iconic school in Baton Rouge history, so its important we get that school back and do something really dynamic there.

The lunch was held at Beausoleil on Jefferson Highway.
