CLINTON - The East Feliciana Parish School Board has deferred action on a move to deny bonuses to teachers no longer employed in the parish but who would be qualified for the extra pay for their performance in a special program last school year.

The board voted 8-4 Tuesday to send the matter back to its Salary Committee for more study.

Superintendent Henderson Lewis wanted to pay bonuses only to eligible teachers who returned for the 2012-13 school year. Teachers who resigned or accepted a teaching job outside the parish would not be eligible.

The bonuses, a minimum of $2,000, are awarded to teachers participating in a teacher advancement program designed to reward teachers who receive good evaluations and whose students show performance gains.
