Notice to Certain Employees - Hazard Pay Grant
Pursuant to Public Act 166 of 2020, legislation was passed that appropriated funding for the K-12 Teacher COVID-19 and School Support COVID-19 Grant Programs. These are commonly known as the hazard pay grants. The purpose of these grants is to recognize the additional time that K-12 classroom teachers and support staff spent outside of normal working hours and additional costs that were incurred during the time of closure due to the pandemic. The district is required to provide notice to those that qualify.
If you qualified you would have gotten an email directly from Diane Shiery on 11/5/2020 with the application/certification form (TSSC19 Grant Certification- Form 5734) attached.
The district is also required to provide this notice as an opportunity for any K-12 classroom teacher or support staff to appeal eligibility status to the district in writing by 4:00 p.m. on December 4th. Please contact Diane Shiery, firstname.lastname@example.org or Kris Jenkins, email@example.com at the BISD administrative building if you have questions regarding your eligibility. There is also a state website that you can refer to: www.Michigan.gov/TSSC19Grants.
ELIGIBLE GRANT RECIPIENTS MUST RETURN THE COMPLETED AND ACCURATE FORM 5734 TO THE BISD PAYROLL DEPARTMENT BY 4:00 P.M. ON DECEMBER 4, 2020.
