The New Living Word School in Ruston has been approved by the state to accept 165 new students through the voucher program possibly receiving over $1million dollars. "The school has verified that it has all required permits. We have signed an agreement with the school to do regular visits throughout the school yea to ensure compliance with this and other requirements," said the Louisiana Dept. of Education. NBC 10 learned today the school has not been approved by the state Fire Marshall's Office. The school isn't set for inspection until August 22nd. We visited New Living Word today we were met by an employee who said the school had no comment at all on the subject and we were asked to step off the property. Barry Landry with the Louisiana Dept. of Education says the state visited the school on June 14th and reported "It did not appear that the school had a lunchroom or an outdoor playground for students." Also on the report when asked on how the school plans to accommodate the new students in the facility the school stated they would convert the chapel into classrooms and they would build a new facility to house the chapel in the fall but while on sit today we didn't see any sign of any construction. We've tried repeatedly in the past to talk to school leaders about the changes taking place at the school but our calls have not been returned.
