Christmas is coming early for employees at New Braunfels Independent School District as it looks to keep staffed up. Full-time staff members will get a one-time, $1,500 supplemental payment next month. Part-timers will get $750. All New Braunfels employees who were hired as of Oct. 1 will be eligible to receive the payments, which aim to retain staff. Like districts across the state, New Braunfels ISD is experiencing a teacher shortage and higher turnover rate thanks to COVID, said Rebecca Villarreal, the district’s executive director of communications. view article arw
