HOUSTON • The Chickasaw County Consolidated School Board approved paying teachers district-wide $30 for working ball games and other extra curricular activities.

According to Superintendent John Ellison, Houlka was already paying the teachers, however, Houston was not, and he felt that it was a good policy to implement district-wide.

He said that it would hopefully help with teacher retention as well as pay them back for the time they are sacrificing by working the events.

The board was in favor of the idea, and Tammy Chamblee made a motion to approve it, with Jamie Earp seconding the motion.

The board voted unanimously to approve it.

The new policy is set to be implemented this upcoming school year.
