Lafayette Parish teachers to receive bonus check

LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) Some school teachers in Lafayette Parish are getting a nice bonus check next month.

The Lafayette Parish School Board, last week, approved a one-time supplemental payment of $1,388 for teachers.

The extra check will be distributed next month and is funded by excess funds in the 2002 half-cent sales tax dedicated to teacher raises.

Board Member Justin Centanni was the only one to vote against the measure saying he preferred a permanent salary increase for teachers, rather than a 1-time distribution.
More than 2000 employees will get the extra check.
