roberts-roy-dpsDetroit — Employees of Detroit Public Schools will receive a bonus in their paycheck on Dec. 21 as part of the district’s budget surplus from last year.

Roy Roberts, DPS emergency financial manager, announced Monday the one-time bonus will be equivalent to 2 percent of the employee’s base salary/wages for the 2011-12 fiscal year.

The payments for teachers will average about $1,300, according to Keith Johnson, president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers.

In August, Roberts announced the district would pay bonuses to 8,000 employees — union and nonunion — out of a projected $11.9 million budget surplus for the district.

DPS spokesman Steve Wasko said the district’s audited general fund surplus was $10.9 million, and the bonuses would cost $1.7 million.
