DDTwo Approves Holiday Bonus for Eligible Employees
The Dorchester School District Two Board of Trustees met December 11, 2023, and approved a bonus for eligible staff.
Each full-time or permanent part-time employee will receive a $725 bonus, which is designed to be approximately $500 after taxes. The eligible staff will receive the incentive on December 20, 2023.
While maintaining DDTwo’s healthy savings for emergencies, the $2.8 million investment in retaining staff is available due to a surplus following careful budgeting and good financial stewardship.
The bonus rewards employees and highlights their tireless efforts, which contribute to DDTwo being an educational leader in the Lowcountry. Although DDTwo is among the lowest-funded school districts across the state, the District ranks among the top school districts in South Carolina.
“Money is top of mind for many families around the holidays, and this is our way of making life easier for our eligible staff,” said Superintendent Dr. Shane Robbins. “I am grateful to the Board of Trustees and our executive team for finalizing this incentive to express our appreciation to Team Dorchester.”
