The Board of Education approved a one time bonus for every teacher. The money will be taken from the general fund and this amounts to $989,000.
It's been several years since Dothan teachers have receieved a bonus like this.
"Everybody likes to get a little extra money and it's just an incentive for those employees that have been with us and that will continue to be with us for this next yearand just to reward them for the job they've done," said Mike Manuel, CFO for Dothan City Schools.
The bonus will be paid to the teachers at the end of the month.
