HARVEY, LA (WVUE) -

The Jefferson Parish School Board voted Tuesday to approve a $269,000 per year contract for a new superintendent. 

The school board approved the contract for Dr. Cade Brumley on a 6-to-3 vote. Some audience and board members objected to the record high salary since many teachers have not had a raise in 15 years.

Brumley formally served as the superintendent of De Soto Parish schools. That system has 5,000 students. Jefferson Parish has 50,000 students.
