Wausau School Board Approves $1 Million Stipend for Staff Members

Tuesday, November 9th, 2021 -- 11:01 AM

The Wausau School Board approved a $1 million stipend for staff members.

During the Board’s monthly meeting on Monday, Superintendent Keith Hilts proposed a $1 million stipend that would go to every staff member that is employed at the district.

“Everybody is working hard, and the COVID adds another layer of uncertainty, fear, and frustration, so the reason we even want to do this is everyone stepping up to accept that challenge and do what’s best for students, staff, and their colleagues.”

Hilts said the money would be coming from a combination of the district’s ESSER funds and fund balance. Each staff member will get $100 plus 1.25% of their salary.
