LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The state's largest school district and its teachers union have agreed to give most employees a $350 bonus next month.

New state-appointed superintendent Baker Kurrus and president Cathy Koehler of the Little Rock Education Association announced the bonus at a news conference following a vote by union members late Monday afternoon to ratify it.

Among those who will receive the one-time payments June 19 are teachers, principals, assistant principals, secretaries and custodians.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette ( ) reports those not receiving the bonus are central-office, top-level administrators.

Kurrus said the bonus is the district's way of expressing its gratitude to employees for their hard work.

Koehler said the vote by around 150 of the association's members was unanimous.
