THIBODAUX, La. (AP) — The Lafourche Parish School Board has agreed to consider asking voters for a one-cent sales tax for teacher salaries and to authorize the use of bonds for school facility upgrades.

Superintendent Jo Ann Mathews says the measure is a consideration at this point.

The Daily Comet reports (http://bit.ly/2h9YBFp) the board will decide whether the resolution moves forward at its Feb. 1 meeting.

Voters would have to agree to a sales tax increase.

In Lafourche, teachers earn an average $48,000 a year, and the starting pay is $40,000.
