OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) - The St. Landry Parish School Board has set a salary range and established an application deadline for the position of school superintendent.
The Advocate reports only seven of the 13 board members were present Thursday when the board unanimously voted to pay the next superintendent from $100,000 to $120,000 annually. The board set a deadline of noon Aug. 27 for applications.
Former Superintendent Michael Nassif, who resigned in November, was paid a $123,000 annual base salary. Other incentives in Nassif's contract boosted his yearly pay to nearly $130,000.
The prospective superintendent initially will have no incentives as part of the contract.
