Lafayette Parish schools get teacher input

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Lafayette Parish School System will send out email surveys this week to all district teachers to get more input on how to proceed with the proposed 2014-15 budget.

Superintendent Pat Cooper says the results should be compiled before the next school board budget meeting, scheduled for Thursday.

The district is facing a deficit of about $23.5 million for the next fiscal year.

Last week, Cooper and other officials proposed cutting millions of dollars in programs and personnel, including about 300 positions. The board took no action on those proposals, and is instead taking time to review the entire budget and submit their own suggestions for consideration.
