Are you moving to Rapides, Grant, or Avoyelles Parish in Louisiana and want your soon to be chosen home to be in a certain school zone? It's not always as easy as one would hope to narrow down this search.
With Parishes (ie Counties) changing the School Zone maps on a annual basis, real estate agents typically no longer put the school information in the MLS. Why? Liability! If we state that it is in JI Barron School zone, you buy the house based on that information and then find out the zone was changed and the agent wasn't aware....you just might want to go back against that agent.
So to make sure you are looking in the right area there are two things that I recommend:
#1 - Go directly to the Parish School Board site and check out the maps! Here are a few of the surrounding Parishes sites:
Along with the maps for the different schools, you can find alot of good information on these sites including...The inFamous School Report Card!! If you have children....you will want to review this information!
#2 - Once you find your top 3 homes, call the School directly to verify with them that the home is zoned for their school! Each of the schools are listed on the School Boards sites. Go directly to the source for final verification! If it's that important, you should get the information first hand.
