|School Board to revisit pay raise issue|
At its March 17 meeting, the Concordia Parish School Board will revisit the issue of a $275 monthly pay raise approved by the board two weeks ago.
On Feb. 10, the board voted 5-3 to raise its member pay to the state average -- $625 per month. Board members presently earn $350 per month. They can pay themselves up to $800 monthly, according to state law.
But the 5-3 vote two weeks ago in favor of the raise was one vote shy of the two-thirds needed by law .
Board member Fred Butcher opted to pass on the vote on Feb. 10. If other board members vote the same at next month's meeting, Butcher's vote will determine whether board members get a raise.
Butcher said Tuesday he didn't feel he should comment on how he will vote until next month's meeting.
Board vice-president Raymond Riley offered the motion to increase board member pay at the February meeting. Martha Rabb seconded the motion.
