Dubach’s Pam Pruden has been named a finalist for the Louisiana Principal of the Year Award, and was recognized at Tuesday night’s Lincoln Parish School Board (LPSB)Meeting.

ACHIEVE Coordinator Cathi Cox-Boniol introduced Pruden, and said she was “…among 9 educational leaders who have been named a Finalist for this year’s Principal of the Year honors and one of only 3 finalists named from North Louisiana.”

Cox-Boniol noted that School Performance Score for Dubach increased 20 points from a 66.4 SPS in spring 2015 to an SPS of 86.4 in spring 2017. The Value-Added Model (VAM) Dubach teacher scores increased 56 percent from spring 2016 to spring 2017, she added.

The winner, along with Teacher of the Year, will be announced at a July event in Baton Rouge.

The board gave approval for revisions in the district’s capital outlay plan, and also authorized advertising for bids for the 2018-2019 school year.

Here’s the revised plan.

Approval was also granted to accept the low bid of $2.73 million by Triad Builders of Ruston for construction of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Building to be located adjacent to Ruston Junior High. Construction is scheduled to begin soon, with occupancy expected for the 2019-2020 school year.

    Maybe the teachers are good enough to overcome, probably we’re lot better applicants
    Put in for job , just didn’t have “friend” in central office , look at enrollment etc and you’ll see what voters think, they just didn’t have any say , time will tell

      Hico Man, Why don’t you just put your name on your comments? I really doubt that you’re from Hico. I think you’re from Ruston!
