Monroe Schools ask Vidrine to stay

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Monroe City School Board members voted 6-1 to ask Superintendent Brent Vidrine to remain in charge of the school district until December 2016.

Board members decided Tuesday to extend Vidrine's contract, which expires May 31, by 30 months, the maximum allowed by Louisiana law.

The board may only extend a superintendent's contract by two years beyond its term, which will expire Dec. 31.

The new contract will remain the same as the previous one, with a salary of $150,000 plus partial benefits and a car allowance of $8,400 annually. According to attorney Doug Lawrence, the superintendent's contract is valued at about $217,000 annually.
