“We hope this one-time pay adjustment will send a much-deserved thank you to all of our employees as they are the key to Gwinnett County Public Schools’ success,” said Wilbanks.
Providing a one-time salary adjustment is not a new practice for the Gwinnett County Board of Education, which took similar action in 2014 and 2016.
The school board and superintendent feel the current salary adjustment is once again an appropriate use of the additional funds, according district officials.
The one-time pay adjustment in June will have no impact on the salary increases approved for employees in the School Board’s FY2020 Budget.
These consist of a $3,000 cost-of-living increase for all employees paid on the teacher salary schedule; a 2% cost-of-living increase for all employees not paid on the teacher salary schedule; and a salary step increase for all eligible employees.
These raises will take effect beginning with employees’ first salary payments for the 2019-2020 school year.
