The Flour Bluff Board of Trustees has approved a one-time payment for the many extra duties that FBISD employees have taken on due to COVID-19 since the start of the school year in August. Full-time employees, employed after November 1st, will received a $500 one-time payment; part-time employees will receive $250.
“The Board of Trustees directed staff to research ways to make this happen,” said Acting Superintendent Joe Kelley. “Staff worked several options to determine a way for the District to show our gratitude for the hard work of our teachers and staff. Additionally, we worked with our financial auditor to ensure the financial health of our fund balance.”
Employees can expect to receive the one-time payment on December 18th via direct deposit. Employees without direct deposit will receive the payment via a check mailed to the employee’s home mailing address.
