GCPS employees to receive $2,000 one-time salary supplement

March 31, 2022

     Today, Superintendent Dr. Calvin J. Watts announced a $2,000 one-time salary supplement for all permanent full-time and part-time Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) employees, which will be paid in the April payroll. Gov. Brian Kemp announced in March that a $2,000 bonus would be provided to specified groups of school staff as part of his mid-year budget amendment for the FY2022 state budget. Superintendent Watts has determined that GCPS will extend the payment of $2,000 to all permanent full-time and part-time employees. In total, almost 22,000 GCPS employees will receive this one-time salary supplement.

     “I applaud the state’s recognition of the outstanding work that is taking place throughout our school district,” says Dr. Watts. “In particular, I am grateful for the state’s recognition of our teachers and the many other professionals who work, day in and day out, to support teaching and learning. Our district appreciates this gesture from the state and felt it appropriate to extend this ‘thank you’ to all of our employees for their hard work and dedication to each and every one of our students.”

     In Gwinnett, all benefit-eligible employees who are active as of March 16, 2022, will receive the one-time $2,000 payment in their paycheck at the end of April. Retirees who currently work part-time (.49) will receive $980.
