HOUMA, La. (AP) — Terrebonne Parish school officials turned their attention to aging facilities less than a week after voters approved a half-cent sales tax to raise school employees' salaries.
Superintendent Philip Martin tells The Courier (http://bit.ly/1360Twg ) discussions about renovating or replacing the parish's aging school facilities continues after the Dec. 6 election. He emphasized the school system will not seek a new tax.
The average age of Terrebonne facilities is 60 years.
Officials are expected to revisit recommendations presented by a 2013 school task force, which include a study of system's facilities, needed renovations, overcrowding issues, population shifts, technology demands and security.
