PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — On Thursday, the Portsmouth Public Schools (PPS) Department of Human Resources announced a new hiring incentive program that will be in place through the start of the school year.
The program aims at bringing new people into the PPS workforce through a variety of financial incentives. School officials say that all new bus driver, school nurses, food services staff and teacher hires will receive a $1,000 new hire bonus.
In addition, the PPS employee who referred them will get a $750 referral bonus. However, those who have ongoing recruitment and hiring responsibilities are not eligible for the program.
There is no limit on how many people an employee can refer.
