French: Paroisse de
is a parish located in the U.S. state of Louisiana. It is one of the
fastest growing parishes in the state. Its population is estimated to be
20,000 to 30,000 residents greater than the 2000 census. One of the major
reasons for parish growth is the number of families wanting to move their
children from the East Baton Rouge Parish public schools to the
higher-performing Ascension public school system. For a time, Hurricane
Katrina also brought in new residents from surrounding areas, but
Ascension Parish President Ronnie Hughes said that the influx of hurricane
victims has decreased and remains a small percent of growth.
