Charleston County News

Editor’s note: A previous version of this story stated the district approved $4M which would come from COVID-19 relief funds. This story has been corrected.

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.
