On Tuesday, U.S. Federal District Court Judge Ivan Lemelle approved the mutual consent agreement. He has asked for slight modifications which will be submitted to the court within the next 30 days.

Tangipahoa Parish School Superintendent Melissa Stilley called the ruling a “historic” opportunity and “a win for all children in Tangipahoa Parish. “
