CHANNELVIEW, Texas — Channelview ISD is hoping to attract new educators with a new incentive.
The district's board of trustees on Tuesday voted to offer up to $3,000 in hiring incentives for any new educator who signs up to teach for three years in Channelview ISD.
The district is offering even more money for new secondary teachers that are certified to teach Spanish. These new teachers are eligible to get $6,000 over three years, or $2,000 per year.
