Phenix City School Board mulls rewarding teachers for attendance

The Phenix City Board of Education is considering rewarding perfect attendance — for teachers.

The board will vote on a proposal at tonight's meeting advocating paying teachers, administrators and staff a $250 bonus for each semester they attain perfect attendance.

To earn the money, an employee cannot utilize any sick or personal days.

Tonight's board meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the Educational Service Center, 1212 Ninth Ave.

The board will also consider approving Sherwood Elementary's after school program for another year. The cost is set at $5 per day per student.
