Shared by Howard County Executive Calvin Ball on February 15th:
President Biden today singled out Howard County during a speech to National Association of Counties leaders in Washington. He praised our efforts to devote American Rescue Plan funding to keep our educators and bus drivers on the job, such as our recent $1,800 bonus for 8,395 HCPSS educators and staff.
Through our strong partnership with the Board of Education, the Howard County Public School System, and others, we are collaborating to use available resources where they are needed most. It is gratifying to be recognized as a national model. By working together, we are delivering results for our community and will continue to lead with innovation to support our educators, create jobs, and move our community forward.
