|Bus driver overpayment issue resolved|
The Concordia Parish School Board may have resolved an issue involving overpayment to some parish bus drivers during the board's regular meeting Thursday night.
When 11 drivers were overpaid due to incorrect information on their audits, the School Board sought an Attorney General ruling on the matter.
Supt. Loretta Blankenstein met with all 11 drivers to seek a settlement of the matter. Seven signed promissory notes to repay the overpayments. The board filed suit against four who refused to pay.
In one case, bus driver Clarence Skipper's amount due the board was reduced in court based on a formula relating to number of days worked, while in another case the board won the full amount due from the driver because that driver never responded nor appeared in court.
"The other two agreed to a settlement based on the formula utilized by the court during the Skipper case," said Blankenstein. "The School Board felt that because of this ruling the only fair thing to do for the drivers who agreed to repay the money would be to apply the same formula set up by the courts to their debts."
She said the system received legal clearance to do this from its attorneys and auditor.
"It was determined that it would be legal because it was designated by the courts," said Blankenstein, adding, "We don't know the exact amounts yet because we are still working on it."
In other business, the board approved the following personnel matters:
Krystal Kelly, paraprofessional, Ferriday Lower, effective February 16, 2009.
Denora Cook, central office maintenance, effective April 20, 2009.
Tina Fitt, counselor, Vidalia Lower and Vidalia Upper, extended medical leave, effective March 13, 2009-March 27, 2009.
Aaron McKeel, custodian, Ferriday Lower, extended medical leave, effective upon exhaustion of accumulated sick leave, until release by physician.
Ivy Quinn, 8 hour/12 month janitor, Ferriday Lower, effective March 16, 2009.
