Floyd County Schools is looking at giving attendance incentives for teachers.

School administrators said that if teachers use no more than two sick days a semester they would receive a $500 supplement, adding up to $1,000 a year.

According to Superintendent Glenn White, teachers are currently using too many sick days.

The funds would be given to full time teachers.

To track attendance, the school system is looking into a special software that will monitor check-in and check-outs. 

Money for the supplement would come from COVID relief funds.
