Spending check locally is beneficial
In the 2005-06 academic year, Lincoln Parish teachers ranked No. 24 in pay out of 68 school districts in Louisiana. However, their salaries still ranked below the state’s average for teachers.
For this check, along with the “13th check,” to increase next year, it is important that teachers use these checks to keep their dollars circulating in the parish. When preparing to buy Christmas presents in the coming month, they can think about shopping locally and keeping dollars in Lincoln Parish to help build a well-staffed, stronger school system for our children.
