NEW ORLEANS—At the start of the fall semester, Delgado had to turn away 1,500 students - the first time in its 88-year history that such at thing happened.
Now, a Delgado Community College official says the school is taking steps to make sure they enough space and teachers for all students who want to enroll this spring.
Vice chancellor Deborah Lee says one big building has six classrooms ready to use on the ground floor and work underway on five or six more upstairs.
She says Delgado also is creating a pool of potential part-time teachers.
She says work is still going on at a building with nine classrooms, and it could take three years to replace the library.
