Employee Merit/ Attendance Bonus Pay for 2017-18 School year
The Dearborn School Board will be providing an attendance incentive and merit pay bonus for all employees who have been employed from July 1, 2017 through June 14, 2018. Please be aware that this extra incentive money is a positive program that the district has created in order to reward employees who save the district money through reduction in paid substitutes and who demonstrate a commitment to the students by maintaining excellent attendance. This money is above and beyond any contract compensation rates. All union heads were consulted and were provided with an opportunity to give input regarding this incentive program.
For 2017-18, the maximum bonus available will double to $1,200. The time of measurement will expand to encourage attendance for 12 month employees through the summer months. The district is allowing the use of up to 2 personal business days and 1 funeral day that will not be counted against the incentive. Employees hired during the school year will be eligible for the incentive but at a reduced rate to account for their partial year employment.
