Caddo modifies salary adjustments
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) – School is around the corner.
And with the new schedules and salary adjustments, concerns are floating throughout the Caddo Parish school district.
Caddo teachers normally receive an advance salary supplement in September and November. Now, some teachers in the system will miss that payment early in the fall in the next school year.
Teachers’ association Red River United says many teachers are unhappy with the new deal.

The Superintendent of Caddo Schools says some teachers will still receive a supplement.
“It’s your back-to-school money. You spend a lot of money to set up your classroom, buy new clothes, anything you might need, your own kids and things they might need for back to school. And then in November giving you money for vacations and things like that,” explained Jordan Thomas of Red River United. “So it’s getting it in a lump sum. It’s their money. It’s the employee’s money. It’s from the state that the parish has to give them.
Tonight on KSLA News 12 @ 10, Supt. Dr. Lamar Gorée will explain the reasoning behind the salary supplement.
“Because of our early start for these K-8 employees, they will receive a check in September that will provide additional resources for their families and we are really looking for them to use it to help meet the needs of their family.”
