Montgomery County Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack is looking to send roughly $22 million from the county’s CARES Act funds to local school districts to help offset the burden and costs associated with keeping our children safe during the pandemic.
There is roughly $72 million left in CARES Act funds according to an official speaking in Commissioners Court on Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020.
“We are thankful for the great partnership with Montgomery County [and] these additional funds will allow us to continue doing all we can to keep our students safe, our staff safe, and our schools open,” said Conroe ISD Superintendent Curtis Null.
“We will continue our mission of hiring more healthcare professionals and custodial staff to keep our campuses safe.
There is an ever present need to purchase additional PPE and cleaning supplies.
We will also be able to invest in more technology to help bridge the digital divide for students in need.
The support of Commissioners Court is both appreciated and well timed.”
Commissioner Noack is looking to reimburse Conroe ISD, Montgomery ISD, Willis ISD, Magnolia ISD, Splendora ISD and New Caney ISD at a rate of up to $200 per student.
“I believe it is in the best interest of our students and the taxpayers to use this money specifically for COVID-19 related expenses, as it was intended,” Commissioner Noack said.
“There is no better use of these dollars than protecting the bright future of our children.”
ISD Certified Enrollment numbers as of Oct. 30, 2020:
• Conroe ISD: 64,382
• Montgomery ISD: 8,987
• Willis ISD: 7,170
• Magnolia ISD: 13,051
• Splendora ISD: 4,122
• New Caney ISD: 16,059
TOTAL: 113,771 X $200/person = $22,754,200
Commissioner Noack has placed this item to be voted on during the Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020 Commissioners Court Agenda.

Why not shut down playing football and baseball at night, saving dollars from lighting costs....Play on Saturday during the day......also, reduce the size of weight rooms on school campuses....We pay entirely too much school taxes in Montgomery, and I do not hear anyone talking about lower the school taxes....heck, I have never had a child in the school system and I am paying nearly $5k per year on fixed income!
