Board Awards Stipends

WINNSBORO (Aug. 4, 2016) – The Fairfield County School Board voted 6-1 during their July 19 meeting to award stipends district wide for certified, classified, athletic and band staff. Paula Hartman (District 2) was the dissenting vote and explained that she voted against the stipends because she had asked Superintendent J.R. Green a year ago for a job description of the Board’s clerk who receives a stipend of $7,000 for  assisting the Board. Hartman said her request was never answered.

At the District level, the Board approved $3,500 stipends for an Induction Coordinator, $2,500 for mentor teachers and $7,000 for the Board’s Administrative Clerk. In the Student Services Department, the Board approved $3,500 for the Data Manager/Medicaid Supervisor and $2,500 for the Lead Social Worker.
