Elmore County Board of Education officials said current full time employees will get $500 and part-time employees will get $250 as a payment for “prospective services to be rendered to our students for the remainder of this semester.” The services include additional cleaning in response to COVID-19 and influenza concerns.

According to board of education officials, employees are also providing additional emotional support to students impacted by the stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic.
