$285K Salary Set for New Louisiana Education Superintendent

Louisiana’s new state education superintendent will receive a 285-thousand-dollar salary, under a pay plan approved tuesday by state lawmakers. Cade Brumley, who has worked as superintendent of Jefferson parish schools, was chosen last week by the Louisiana board of elementary and secondary education to oversee public schools statewide. Brumley still needs senate confirmation for the job, which will be considered over the next week. His pay package was approved without objection by the joint house and senate budget committee, under a four-year contract effective June 8th. Brumley also will get a one-time 5-thousand-dollar payment for moving expenses, and he’ll have use of a state vehicle for work, according to information the education board sent to lawmakers. He’s eligible for annual 3-percent pay hikes if he receives a positive evaluation from the education board.
