LPSB Construction Projects Proceeding as Planned

Several Lincoln Parish school construction projects are proceeding mostly as planned, Construction Manager James Payton told last night’s meeting of the Lincoln Parish School Board (LPSB).

He said that repairs to the new Choudrant High School track were underway. With the recent wet weather, some settling had occurred under culverts.

Said Payton, “Repairs have been made to the four areas where the track was breached. The asphalt has not been put back yet,” he added.

Architect Mike Walpole reported that the baseball complex at Ruston Junior High was almost complete.

Business manager George Murphy reported that November sales taxes were down about $300 thousand compared to the same month last year, but that year to date, collections were $2.7 million more than last year.

Murphy said that changes to the health care plan would begin January 1, and should help the plan’s deficit.

Superintendent Mike Milstead reported that he had instituted a monthly leadership training meeting with principals, and were doing a book study on “The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make.” He said similar training sessions with new teachers and aspiring principals were also underway.
