NEW ROADS- Pointe Coupee Parish School Board members say newly hired Superintendent Kevin Lemoine has shaved off nearly $1.3 million in expenditures from the 2015-16 proposed $22.2 million budget.
    
Board members rejected a previous spending plan, primarily from former superintendent Linda D'Amico, which included a projected deficit of nearly $630,000 for the upcoming school year.
    
Lemoine, who took the reins as superintendent July 1, accomplished what he did mostly through a reorganization plan for the district's Central Office, which will mean nearly $500,000 in savings.
    
Lemoine also saved more than $740,000 through cuts in faculty and support staff throughout the district - without any proposed cuts to teachers.
