HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne school Superintendent Philip Martin could receive a more than $40,000 raise beginning this year.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1BfzBEx) the Terrebonne Parish School Board Insurance, Finance and Section 16 Lands Committee approved a recommendation Monday to increase the superintendent’s salary from $143,500 to $185,000, a 29 percent boost. The recommendation would also extend Martin’s contract two years to Dec. 31, 2018.

If approved by the school board, the raise would be paid for from the district’s general account.

Board President Roosevelt Thomas authored the proposal. Thomas says surrounding school districts have smaller enrollments, similar or lower district grades and still pay their superintendents more.
