Active, full-time employees and those who work at least 29 hours a week are eligible for the payment. With about 6,500 employees expected to receive the benefit, Duckett said the effort is one of the district’s broadest payments of its kind.
APS is not the only district to approve one-time payments for employees during the pandemic. About 12,000 eligible Gwinnett County Public Schools’ employees will receive $700 next month.
The APS payment will be included in workers’ Dec. 15 paychecks.
