HARVEY, La. — The Jefferson Parish School Board has approved a $269,000 per year contract for its new superintendent.
WVUE-TV reports the school board Tuesday approved the contract for Dr. Cade Brumley on a 6-to-3 vote. Some audience and board members objected to the record high salary, since many teachers have not had a raise in 15 years.
