Kennedy is not scheduled to re-open. Many people in the community ask me what is going to happen to Kennedy. Some former staffers say the school was built on a dump site and is contaminated or at least suspected to be contaminated. I think this would be an excellent site for a school for sustainable practices, the so called ‘green economy’.
It has ample green space and parking:
Kennedy High School is adjacent to both the US Department of Agriculture Southern regional Research Center, City Park, Bayou St. John, and Lake Pontchartrain. We could be training our young adults to build and maintain wetlands there.
