MONTAGUE — The Montague ISD School Board voted unanimously at the April board meeting to give back to their employees by providing a one-time $500 stimulus to all district employees.
The board explained, “This is our way of saying thank you for your continued ability to show grit in the face of adversity throughout this pandemic. Efforts to continue to provide meaningful instruction and support for students and families have not gone unnoticed.
“All employees from teachers to food service, maintenance, and teachers’ aides have come together to make distance learning a positive experience.
“Montague ISD also proudly supports the businesses within our county and hopefully this stipend will also help to boost the economies of our local businesses as we begin the reopening of Montague County.”
