Stimulus update: Maryland teachers will receive one-time $1,000 incentive checks in four days

Stimulus update: This week, staff members at a Maryland school district will get an early Christmas gift that will give them some extra money to use over the holidays.

The Board of Education fully supported the $1,000 Employee Appreciation Bonus that Anne Arundel County Public Schools will be providing to its staff on Friday. The AACPS district stated that the bonus will be distributed to all permanent employees by December 16 and will be pro-rated based on an employee’s full-time equivalent.

In a letter to the AACPS staff, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mark Bedell stated that “no school system can be great without great people.” “As I’ve already said, the work you’re doing despite some enormous obstacles is incredible. No matter what position you hold in our educational system, your commitment and enthusiasm benefit our students every day. Please keep that in mind always.

The money that AACPS saved from the vacancies it experienced throughout the school system will be used to pay the bonuses. As a result, the school district won’t need to request any extra funding to pay for these bonuses.

Bedell won’t take the bonus himself.

Additionally, workers were informed that healthcare premiums would not be deducted from their paychecks on December 28 due to a holiday. Due to the current balance of the school system’s healthcare fund, this holiday is possible.

I fully understand that the bonus is a modest expression of gratitude, Bedell said. But finding ways to merely say “Thank you” is crucial to both the Board of Education and me.
