I've confirmed that the Merit Award Program (MAP) Bonus Awards for Escambia County Teachers for the 2007-2008 school year have been mailed out today. The gross amount of the checks will be $2,042.00 each--On average, the net checks will be just under $1,900.
Congratulations to all of the district personnel who worked hard, went "above and beyond" and earned these awards. We're doing it again next year, so my advice--if you want a bonus check this time next year--is to work hard, try to go above and beyond the call of duty, and by all means...DO NOT voluntarily OPT out of the bonus plan!
