Vermilion Parish bus drivers who shuttle students to extracurricular activities will get a pay raise.
The Vermilion Parish School Board has approved a $2.50-per-hour pay raise for extracurricular activity bus drivers, bringing their hourly rate to $11.
According to Superintendent Jerome Puyau, teachers and principals from across the parish were on board with this move. He says the schools themselves pay bus drivers who transport students to athletic contests, club conventions, and other events.
Puyau says the raise is only for drivers who work during extracurricular activities.
