GRADY COUNTY, GA (WALB) -  he Grady County Board of Education hopes to show teachers who have taught for at least 21 years how much they are appreciated. 

Superintendent Lee Bailey met with the board last week to discuss ways to increase supplements for veteran teachers. 

Currently, after 21 years, teachers do not receive any additional pay from the state. 

Bailey wants to reward the 131 most veteran teachers in the county. 

“You have teachers that have been here.  They've dedicated their lives to education. And this is just a small way to indicate how the board feels about that,” said Bailey. 

Bailey said the board will try to find additional funding from other sources or from other parts of the budget to avoid raising the millage rate.
