AMITE- The Tangipahoa Parish School System will use extra state revenue it received for this school year to cover mandatory supplemental pay for certified teachers.

The state legislature gave funding to public school districts outside the Minimum Foundation Program, a formula used to fund school systems, which they can put into their budgets.

School Board President Brett Duncan says Tangipahoa Parish will get $928,000.

Out of the extra funds, Duncan says just over $883,000 will go toward a $600 supplement pay per certified teacher.

He says the board has not decided whether to give a one-time payment of $300 for each noncertified teacher in the district, as it has done in the past.
