MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - All full-time Autauga County Board of Education employees will receive $500 in incentive pay before Christmas, Superintendent Spence Agee confirmed Friday.

According to a statement from the school district, Agree made the recommendation to the school board at a special called meeting Thursday, and it was approved.
