“I view our instructors as frontline workers,” Superintendent Robert Mayfield let the news know. “Educators have put themselves in danger to teach understudies consistently and have contributed to cover the substitute shortage the locale is confronting,” Mayfield said. He said he wants to offer more, yet the installment approves Monday honors and recognizes those endeavors.
Mayfield said he’s glad for the cooperation the staff has shown. As per the proposal introduced to the educational committee, the bonuses will cost about $285,000. Mayfield said they would be paid utilizing stimulus money the region got in light of the pandemic.
There’s space for this one-time reward in the region’s 2012-22 spending plan. Yet, monetary forecasts show the area could see a “huge monetary cliff” later federal COVID-19 stimulus money runs out, the proposal said.
The bonuses will be distributed on Dec. 24.
