The St. Landry Parish School Board met this week and decided to vote against a suggested list of names of school employees who were scheduled to be laid off by May 22the due to budgetary concerns.

The vote to reject the proposed layoffs yesterday came at the end of very long meeting at which the board also decided to allow the school district to proceed with their application for up to $3.5 million in loans to help alleviate an ongoing financial crisis.

Acting Superintendent Joseph Cassimere had already discussed with the school the board the possibility to approve a list of name of workers who would be subject layoffs from various employee categories.

The decision to get rid of the employees was supposed to be part of a two-phase employee layoff plan that district officials said would save several million dollars annually as they are figuring that there will be a $3.9 million deficit by June 30.
