Updated Schools Map

The color coding and data for the 1950s schools map have been updated.
Red = demolished or slated for demolition.
Yellow = received a preliminary assessment of "complete replacement" by the School Facilities Master Plan for Orleans Parish.
Green = OK. Only one of these buildings (Mahalia Jackson Elementary, 2101 Freret) is part of the public school system. The others are private. Of note, Brother Martin High School in Gentilly managed to renovate and re-open by February 2006.
Public hearings will be held at various school sites.
All of these schools were all recognized in Samuel Wilson's Guide to New Orleans Architecture.
