The bonuses will go to full-time, part-time and substitute teachers, as long as the employee is actively working. Part-time employees and substitutes must have been active within the last 20 days and worked a minimum of 90 days with the district.


“The incentive supplement is the leadership’s way of expressing appreciation for our employees’ dedication and sacrifice in support of the school district during what has been a difficult school year,” said Dr. Morcease J. Beasley. “I join with the Board of Education members in believing that these supplements will serve as a means of retaining dedicated administrators, educators, support personnel, maintenance staff, custodians, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, and others who make educating our students possible.”

The bonuses will go out to all teachers by the end of 2022. The district did say the amount would have taxes taken out based on the employee’s individual income tax rate.
