Fort Worth ISD teachers and staff are expected to get a COVID-19 bonus as a thank you gesture for their courage and sacrifice during the pandemic.
The school board approved the one-time stipend on Tuesday.
All full-time employees will get $1,000 and part-time employees will get $500, provided they are eligible for this bonus.
According to the school board, the bonuses would not have been possible without the district tax increase approved by voters in November.
Teachers and staff members at the Fort Worth ISD would be happy with this act of kindness.
