Tennesse, California, Colorado, Georgia, and Texas districts have signed their approval for the Stimulus Checks, which they think will give a morale boost for the staff who are teaching. These checks might also reduce the number of turnovers caused due to teachers resigning due to a paradigm change. The first to sign off these checks in March was Georgia.
A stimulus check is formulated amounting to $1,000, which will be dished out to the 230,000 employees at the school level. These checks might eat away 35% of the States fundings. Not only will the teachers be aided but also drivers, cafeteria workers, and other custodians. The total amount might be near about $230.5 million and be the heftiest amount debited from the Stimulus Fundings for Georgia.
Berkeley, which is in California, is planning to dish out $2.8 million for the teachers to generate a bonus of 3.5%. This was planned right before the new school year began. The state of Florida has planned to gift 170,000 teachers, a payment of $1,000 in the upcoming weeks. Payments that are planned to be gifted belong to a $101.5 billion budget.
Teacher Stimulus Checks Not Approved In Certain States
The plan for the Stimulus Checks by Florida is being questioned as its Education Department believes that it might lead to a federal violation. The Hawaiin Governor vetoed the bill which planned to implement payments as a “thank you” for teachers.
Lindsay Nofelt, who is another of two, believes that this money could be better utilized for the improvement of math and science. The schools have to decide on their choice to spend the Stimulus Checks before 2024. The total amount of the fun was around $190 billion. Such, plans are just speculations as the funds will fail to dispatch without proper authorization.
