PLAQUEMINE, La. (AP) - Iberville Parish School Superintendent Ed Cancienne has challenged the facts stated in a recent attorney general's opinion alleging the school district had violated state law by letting 12-month employees work "skeleton shifts" during holiday breaks.
Cancienne and Brandie Blanchard, the district's personnel coordinator, told members of the Iberville Parish School Board Monday that evidence presented to the Attorney General's Office was "incorrect."
The longtime school district practice of allowing 12-month employees to work minimally staffed shifts during holiday breaks was called into question by board member Darlene Ourso.
Cancienne said all non-central and central office staff worked "modified" schedules during last year's Thanksgiving holiday break, whereas the opinion stated they all worked their regular schedule.
