School Board to Re-vote Supt Pay Raise

Due to what is described as a “procedural error,” next Tuesday’s (May 2) meeting of the Lincoln Parish School Board (LPSB) will have mulligan on the March action to award Superintendent Mike Milstead a $10 thousand/year pay raise and contract extension.

From the memo and agenda:

Assistant District Attorney Jeff Robinson has noted a procedural error in the extension of the Superintendent’s contract at the March meeting; therefore, the Executive Committee will meet at 5:45p.m. on Tuesday, May 2, 2017,to consider the same.

Also, the Employment of the Superintendent policy-CED says the contract period can extend no longer than two years after the expiration of the term of office of the Board. Because board members’ current term ends in December 2018, instead of a full four year contract,the maximum time period for this contract is three and one-half years.

Lincoln Parish News Online had noted in a news story earlier this month that the March action was likely not valid because the committee that recommended the action did not have a public meeting.

The full board meeting is set for 6:00 PM at the Central Office, 410 South Farmerville Street.

Here is the agenda.

    I strongly urge all teachers to vote in the next school bd election and see to it that any bd member that votes for our glorious superintendent’s raise and contract extension Tuesday is voted out of office. A raise for him is another slap in the face to all teachers by the central office and our school bd! We do the work not Mike Milstead! He nor our school board can’t be trusted!

    Mike is getting a raise because he does his job well. Just because you don’t him or his methods doesn’t negate its effectiveness.
