LISD Pay Raises: The Liberty school board approved a pay raise for district staff during Tuesday night’s meeting that is expected to result in more than a quarter of a million dollars in deficit spending for the 2018-2019 fiscal year. That deficit will be covered by the district’s general fund balance or reserves. The adopted compensation plan includes an $800 pay increase for all teachers with those educators in years 1 through 13 of their teaching career and year 25 receiving even more. The teacher raises range from 1.5 percent up to 3.88 percent. All non-teaching staff will receive a 1 percent increase in pay for the coming fiscal year. That comes on the heels of pay raises of more than 3 percent in each of the last four fiscal years.
DCDC BIG Grants: Back in April, Dayton City Council gave approval to a Dayton Community Development Corporation grant to Dayton Trading on Hwy 90. The grant for $30,000 had already received initial approval by the DCDC board to go to Larry Lambright. The type of grant is called a Business Improvement and Growth or what is referred to by its initials as a BIG grant. The grant money was used by Larry Lambright to clean up and beautify the property immediately west of Dayton Trading on U.S. 90. DCDC Executive Director Courtland Holman said these grants are relatively new and are part of the DCDC’s efforts to help existing businesses expand. Learn more about applying for BIG grants on the DCDC website.
LHS Principal: Liberty High School has a new principal. During Tuesday night’s Liberty school board meeting, trustees named Benicia Bendele as the high school campus’ top administrator. LISD Superintendent Dr. Cody Abshier said Ms. Bendele has been serving as the academic dean at Liberty High School. We’ve reported Dr. Chad Barrett resigned last month as principal of Liberty High School, a position he held since May 2013. Dr. Barrett is headed back to Pasadena ISD where he will serve as head athletic trainer. He will be supervising all athletic trainers throughout that district, including Pasadena’s five high schools. Dr. Barrett has been working closely with Ms. Bendele over the summer to ensure a smooth transition at LHS.
Obituaries: Richard Randal Platt, 73, of Clark. Service 1 p.m. Saturday at Allison Funeral Service.
