Teachers and staff in Vermilion Parish will not get a 13th supplemental check.

School district chief financial officer Phillip Sellers says the move was necessary to balance the budget in the wake of declining oil and gas and sales tax revenues over the last year.

Sellers says the recommendation was the best possible decision by the board because other choices would include cutting education, teachers and even schools.
