Bonus Exclusions Make Some Educators Unhappy
Some education employees in Washington County, TN will be happy in about a month - thatís when they are scheduled to receive a one-time salary increase of 1.5 percent. However, not all school system employees will get the raise and that makes some board of education members very unhappy. The funds provided by the General Assembly requires professional certification for any employee to get the extra $550 - which means bus drivers, custodians and others who help keep the school system running wonít get any extra money in their pocket. The idea is boost movement to merit-based pay for teachers. Officials say if the school system had to come up with the money to make up the difference, it would cost an additional $338,000.
