HOUMA, La. (AP) - The Terrebonne Parish School Board gave its superintendent the highest grade he can receive two weeks before it will vote to increase his salary.

The Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1eHa9xq) Superintendent Philip Martin received a satisfactory grade Tuesday from the board during a special meeting to evaluate him in secret.

Board members have often applauded Martin’s efforts, citing academic growth under his watch. The school district received a B grade from the state last October, a substantial improvement from the C it received for the 2011-12 school year.

Earlier this month, a school board committee approved a recommendation to increase the superintendent’s salary from $143,500 to $185,000, The recommendation would also extend Martin’s contract two years to Dec. 31, 2018.

The board will vote on the proposal at its July 7 meeting.
