Among the other news from the State of the State yesterday morning from Gov. Brian Kemp was the announcement of a one-time $1,000 bonus payment for Georgia every K-12 teacher and staff member in the state.   

“In a day and age where so much is thrown at those investing in our children on the front lines, the additional burdens of remote learning, social distancing, wearing a mask, adapting to the new normal — honestly made educating overwhelming,” Governor Kemp said in his State of the State address. “But the great men and women running Georgia’s schools didn’t miss a beat. From principals to teachers to custodians, bus drivers and support staff on down, their actions have inspired all of us, and today, I am proud to announce that, working closely with State School Superintendent Richard Woods, the state will provide additional support to school system reopening efforts, equating to a one-time supplement of $1,000 for every teacher and other employee.”
