School for the visually impaired is under investigation

The state education department is looking into allegations of improprieties at the Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired.

Superintendent of Education Paul Pastorek says changes will be made, similar to the types of revamped security plans made at the Louisiana School for the Deaf, which has faced a sexual misconduct scandal.

Pastorek says the situations reported at the visually impaired school - which he wouldn't describe - don't rise to the level of accusations at the deaf school. But he says they require attention and plans for security and communication improvements.

Pastorek closed the deaf school last month after charges that a 16-year-old student with a history of behavioral problems raped a 6-year-old student on a school bus. The school reopened last week after new security measures were enacted.
