HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne Parish school officials turned their attention to aging facilities less than a week after voters approved a half-cent sales tax to raise school employees’ salaries.

Superintendent Philip Martin tells The Courier (https://bit.ly/1360Twg ) discussions about renovating or replacing the parish’s aging school facilities continues after the Dec. 6 election. He emphasized the school system will not seek a new tax.

The average age of Terrebonne facilities is 60 years.

Officials are expected to revisit recommendations presented by a 2013 school task force, which include a study of system’s facilities, needed renovations, overcrowding issues, population shifts, technology demands and security.
