MANSFIELD, La. (AP) - DeSoto Parish School District employees are in line for an extra check this month and a bump in pay next year, following a unanimous vote of the school board.

The Times reports (http://bit.ly/1ujgkvv ) the school board approved Thursday $1,000 for teachers and $500 for support staff in one-time checks to be issued Oct. 25 and the like amount added to the salary scheduled in the 2014-15 fiscal year.

Officials say the school board is able to hand out the money because of increased Minimum Foundation Program funds, part of which is dedicated to teacher salaries. The board is covering ng the support staff payments from local funds. Total impact to the budget: $807,000.
