New Orleans, La. (Jan. 20, 2015)The Louisiana Federation for Children, the state’s voice for educational choice, will host an information session for parents who would like to enroll their children in the Louisiana Scholarship Program.

Main round application deadline via OneApp is February 27.

Parents will have the opportunity to learn about the Louisiana Scholarship Program’s application process. The parent information session will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 31, 2015, at the Louisiana Children’s Museum in New Orleans.
