AISD to consider bonus funds for district staff
Tuesday, February 9, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano
The Austin Independent School District is considering $1,000 “retention incentive benefits” for full-time staff and $500 payments for part-time staff. AISD trustees will vote on the benefits at their Feb. 11 meeting. A press release from the district explains that the bonuses are a way to recognize outstanding work throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. If approved, the money will be distributed in March to employees earning less than $150,000 a year. The measure is supported by Superintendent Stephanie Elizalde, who has “prioritized the need for this additional monetary award as staff continues to persevere through the many challenges of serving students during the pandemic,” according to the press release.
