MONROE, La. (AP) - Juanita Duke, director of business for the Ouachita Parish School Board, said the board will distribute the 14th check to staff on Friday.

Duke tells The News-Start (https://tnsne.ws/1RQAoiy) the amount is about 16 percent more than last year because of a decrease in full-time employees and a drop in retirement contribution rates.

The tax is based on the 1995 sales tax, and she said sales tax collection has been up about 5.2 percent.

The following amounts will be distributed:

-Instructional Employees: $2,450

-9 and 10 Month Support Employees: $1,190

-11 and 12 Month Support Employees: $1,585
