TRINITY — The Trinity ISD Board of Trustees plans to give retention stipends to every employee in the district.

Superintendent Dr. John Kaufman said that at the board’s Feb. 26 meeting, board members passed a resolution to provide the funds.

Kaufman said that the district had some extra funds and decided to do that, particularly because expected funding from the state did not materialize.

“We wanted to recognize the work that all employees did,” he said. “They’re putting in extra effort and need to be compensated.”

While the amount has not been determined, aides, custodians, bus drivers, all support staff, everyone in district will receive the money; however, Kaufman said that employees need to remain in the district until the end of the next semester — Dec. 20. To leave either voluntarily or unvoluntarily before that means the stipend will have to be repaid.

Employees will be present with an agreement to that effect, he said.

In other business, the board:

•approved the Beta clubs from Trinity Middle School and Trinity High School permission to go to Savannah, Ga., for national competition;

•approved the purchase of two 77-passenger buses from Longhorn Bus Sales for $248,000; and

•approved the lease-purchase of new Chromebooks and PCs for the 2024-25 school year at a cost of $80,000.
