Parents of North Iberville High School students will take their fight to another level today. Several weeks ago, the school board voted to shut down North Iberville High --- citing low test scores. But parents and students say closing the school will lead to limited options for young people. Today they plan to march with some special guests. Civil rights activist Reverend Al Sharpton, and Reverend Byron Clay are set to appear at the protest. The rally kicks off at 3 p.m. at Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church in Plaquemine.
