CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Members of the Charleston County School District (CCSD) Board on Monday unanimously approved a $5.2,000,000 plan to give faculty and staff bonuses.
The district says that the bonuses are a way to show appreciation for employees who have put in extra effort to adapt to learning changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Money for the bonuses will come from the district’s general operating fund, which is their normal operating fund.
The $500 bonuses will be prorated based on full-time equivalency and will roll out by June.
