CCSD reaches tentative agreements on retention bonus

The Clark County School District (CCSD) announced tentative agreements with all employee bargaining units for COVID retention bonuses for all full-time employees.

As part of the agreement, all full-time employees employed as of January 1, 2022, will receive a COVID retention bonus of $1,000. CCSD will pay an additional $1,000 bonus to employees employed full-time on May 25, 2022.

This retention bonus is one more way to support and thank employees and mitigate the economic impact of the COVID pandemic.

“The Board is grateful for the commitment our employees have maintained throughout the pandemic to provide the best possible support for students,” said Board of School Trustees President Irene A. Cepeda. “This agreement is a small way to show employees our appreciation for their dedication to the children of Clark County.”

CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara and District staff will present the MOA to the Board of School Trustees at their regular meeting on January 13, 2022.

“The pandemic has stressed everyone in our community and across the country. This agreement is another step in showing our support and thanks to employees who continue to provide for the 300,000 students in CCSD,” said Superintendent Jara. “We recognize the hardships born by so many of our employees throughout this pandemic and are committed to providing the resources available to support educators’ needs.”

CCSD has allocated approximately $80 million in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Funds to cover the expected costs of the retention bonuses.
