Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on Wednesday that teachers and principals will receive a monetary bonus of $1,000.
DeSantis said the bonuses will go to nearly 175,000 educators for their work during the pandemic.
“We’re proud that we got the bonuses through,” DeSantis said. “We understand that it was a unique set of circumstances that many of our schools had to do.”
DeSantis said he expects to sign the budget in the coming days.
