It is always nice to hear that Midland ISD is giving more to those working in the school district. Every employee will receive a $2,000 stipend. That’s something most people in Midland can appreciate.
The stipends are a $6 million gesture from the school board to its employees. The stipend is possible because of a 2021-22 budget surplus and through the state’s recent action to adjust in-person attendance funding for this school year. The stipend will be paid at the end of May, according to the district.
