|School board recognizes teachers|
Several parish educators were recognized during the monthly meeting of the Franklin Parish School Board.
Mary Lee Johnson, Edith Oliver, and Linda Powell of Winnsboro Elementary, and Glen Watkins, formerly of Crowville, never missed a day of school during the 2007-08 school year. Board president Eddie Ray Bryan presented each honoree with a plaque of recognition.
Dianne Ferrington, second grade teacher at Gilbert Jr. High received the Excellence in Education award for having the highest class composite score on the IOWA test.
Ruby Ezell, third grade teacher at Gilbert Jr. High received the Excellence in Education award for the iLEAP tests, for the third consecutive year.
Debby McMurry, fourth grade teacher at Crowville, received the award for having 92.5% of her students score Basic or above in mathematics on the LEAP test. McMurry has been a recipient of the Excellence in Education award for the third consecutive year.
In business news, transportation director Benton Moore presented the low bid to remove and replace the outdoor boiler system at Winnsboro Elementary.
"It'll take roughly 30 days to complete the installation," said Moore. "It just takes some time to get all the parts in and this is a good time of year to do it."
Board members voted unanimously to consider the bid from Terrell Heat and Air of Farmerville for $37,999.
Ginger Boutwell, LSU AgCenter Extension Agent presented the parish quarterly report. She informed the board on disaster recovery information still available though pamphlets obtained at the extension office.
According to the quarterly report, Hurricane Gustav dumped 19+ inches of rain on Franklin Parish with 15 inches coming in 24 hours. Early soybeans, cotton and sweet potatoes were affected by loss of yield and quality.
Supt. Dr. Lanny Johnson updated board members on the salary schedule on day to day long term substitute teachers.
"The new salary schedule simply omits the clause that mandates substitute teachers take six hours within in the first nine weeks and has been extended through the whole year," said Johnson. "We want to give the teachers more time to take their college hours."
In the president's report, Bryan addressed the issue of the one-time employee bonus.
"We know that some people have two jobs in the school system," said Bryan, "but the bonuses are paid per employee, not per job."
