Centreville Public Schools is giving a $1,000 stipend to its employees next month.
The matter was approved by the district’s board of education Monday.
Superintendent Chad Brady said the one-time stipend will cost the district about $123,000. The expenditure will come out of the district’s general fund.
Brady said a student count greater than projected and solid fiscal responsibility by the district’s board of education have put the district in a position to recognize its employees in such a manner.
Based on student growth alone, the district is collecting $345,000 in additional funding, Brady said. The district’s enrollment is about 900 students, roughly 45 more than it had budgeted for the 2023-24 academic year.
Centreville Public Schools is the fourth-largest of the county’s eight K-12 school district.
