The Conway Board of Education will consider a bonus recommendation for employees during its regular meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at 2220 Prince St.
According to the agenda, a memo was sent out to employees and a ballot included two options: provide one $300 bonus to each employee or provide a bonus to every employee in the district that includes a $200 amount to each employee combined with an amount equal to .25 percent of their total annual contracted wages.
The results are set to be discussed during the meeting.
In other news, the board will consider five more community service learning applications for students including Arkansas Children’s Foundation and the Faulkner County Circle of Friends, Fellowship Bible Church, Kiwanis of Conway, New Generation Church’s after-school program and United Way of Central Arkansas.
Jacob Smith, assistant principal at Conway High School, first presented the new community service learning plan in compliance with the Every Student Succeeds Act to the board in October.
ESSA was first passed in 2015 and 2018.
“What the plan does is it provides a little bit of federal accountability for the state of Arkansas in regard to things in which we’re doing in the state and stakeholders within the state of Arkansas had to stay within our specific plan,” Smith told board members back in October.
He said that each school is given a grade and service learning is a factor that is looked at.
Smith forewarned board members the new process for submitted CSL approval would be through them; in November, the board also passed applications for the Conway Human Development Center Volunteer Council and the City of Hope Outreach.
