The La Porte ISD plans to offer a thousand-dollar pandemic-related stipend to most of its employees. The district's board of trustees approved a resolution on Tuesday night to recognize the employees for going "above and beyond their duties and responsibilities" during the pandemic. The trustees unanimously approved the one-time payment to every district employee who was employed by September 8th of this year. Substitutes, temps, and employees on administrative leave don't qualify.
