BOARD MEMBER COMPENSATION AND EXPENSES

 

 

The Plaquemines Parish School Board shall provide an expense allowance and expense reimbursement for its members in accordance with state law and at a rate set by the Board.  Board members shall also be authorized to receive reimbursement for mileage going to and from meetings as well as reimbursement for actual travel and related expenses outside the jurisdictional boundaries of the Board while on official School Board business, all in accordance with Board policy.

 

Any action increasing the compensation for Board members shall require a two-thirds vote of the total membership.  Before any action is taken, however, the Board shall advertise in the official journal of the Board the time and place of a meeting to consider the expense allowance.  The advertisement shall appear on at least two (2) separate days during the fifteen (15) days immediately preceding such meeting.

 

Members of the Executive Committee (Board President, Vice-President and Executive Committee Member) will receive an additional per diem per month of $50.00, provided however, an executive committee member attending an executive committee meeting and a Board meeting on the same day shall not receive compensation for the executive committee meeting.
