FORT POLK (AP) — The Department of Defense is releasing more than $18 million to the Vernon Parish School Board for a school that will serve military families at Fort Polk.

Sen. Mary Landrieu's office says the action announced Tuesday will allow construction to begin on the $20 million South Polk Elementary School. The school will serve 800 students in first- through fourth-grades. State and local governments are contributing to $2 million to the cost.
