An MFP lawsuit originally filed by the St. John the Baptist Parish School Board says a number of Louisiana school districts claim they are owed back pay in state MFP funds.

According to our news partners at KATC, Acadia Parish voted unanimously Monday night to join in as plaintiffs with Vermilion, St. Landry and Evangeline Parishes.

Superintendent John Bourque tells KATC the board began exploring the lawsuit before the Christmas holidays.
