Need info for enrolling children (2 w/ special needs) in Metairie, Louisiana schools this fall.

"I have three children. My eight year old will be in fourth grade and has been diagnosed with mild autism. He is currently in a regular third grade classroom. My six year old will be in second grade. He has been diagnosed with mild to moderate autism. He is currently being mainstreamed into a regular first grade classroom. My two year old will be three in May.

I am currently living in JC Ellis school district, but they will finish the year in St. Tammany Parish. I am interested in any information you can provide for any of my children's education. I want to enroll them in the fall."
