In a special called meeting today, the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education approved a bonus payment as a special thank you for all the staff have done to maintain extraordinary educational opportunities for students every day during such a challenging and unprecedented year.
Non-certified staff will receive a one-time bonus of 6.5% of annual base salary. Certified staff and district leaders (certified and classified) will receive a one-time bonus of $1,000. The bonus structure is designed to show the Board’s gratitude by providing significant monetary support to classified staff whose steps have been frozen for many years and have not seen raises.
"We are conducting a salary study as a part of the strategic planning process and maintain our commitment to take a broader look at all salaries as part of our strategic planning process to examine salaries for classified and certified staff in comparison with our other ten benchmark districts,” stated Superintendent Dr. Tony B. Watlington, Sr.
Each employee will receive the one-time bonus in their June 23 paycheck. We appreciate the leadership and support of our Board of Education, and our finance department for facilitating the payment of this special bonus.
