Good Morning

A common application system comes to Baton Rouge as the Baton Rouge Achievement Zone (BRAZ) launches a common application process for 14 area schools to ensure all children have fair access to an excellent education. The process, called Enroll Baton Rouge (EnrollBR), aims to empower families with school choice by providing them information about BRAZ schools and streamlining the school enrollment process through the ease of one centralized application system, rather than separate applications for each school.

Have a great day. – Paul
