VIDALIA — Concordia Parish School Board members voted to increase their pay by $150 per month during their regularly scheduled meeting Thursday.

District 3B Board Member Lisette Forman made the motion to raise board members’ compensation from $650 per month to $800 per month during a Thursday’ meeting of the Concordia Parish School Board.

The School Board President Fred Butcher’s pay would increase to $850 per month, Superintendent Whest Shirley said.
