NEISD will pay all employees during COVID-19 closure

The North East ISD Board of Trustees has approved a resolution that will allow the District to pay all its employees during this emergency closure.

 

Board members voted Friday to give the superintendent the power to continue to compensate both hourly and salaried employees, even if they are working from home due to social distancing recommendations because of COVID-19. This includes teachers, bus drivers, custodians, and more.

 

"Dr. Maika, his staff and the Board recognize that during these trying times, we must continue to provide services to our community," said Shannon Grona, Board President. "Continuing to pay the employees who make this District a success is the right thing to do." NEISD schools are currently closed through April 3.
