On Tuesday, March 19, the Montgomery ISD Board of Trustees met for their regularly scheduled board meeting. You can watch the video and read the recap below:


During the March school board meeting, Montgomery ISD trustees approved the guaranteed maximum price for renovations at Montgomery High School.

“We are very excited to begin these renovations at Montgomery High School,” Board President Laurie Turner said. “These improvements will positively impact the learning environment at the school and allow our teachers and staff to support the needs of our students for years to come. We will continue to focus on transparency and share frequent updates about the progress of this project, consistent with how we’ve communicated about all projects funded by our 2022 bond.”

Trustees also heard an update about the MISD Athletic Department. MISD Athletic Director Clint Heard highlighted the accomplishments of the athletic programs across the district. MISD hosts 32 sports at the secondary level.

“While we are incredibly proud of the achievements of the student athletes who participate in our programs, we are equally proud to share about their performance in the classroom,” Heard said. “We had 123 students earn academic all-district honors this year, and 31 earned academic all-state honors. The district is also home to 33 student athletes who have committed to pursuing their athletic endeavors at the collegiate level next year.”

Also during the meeting, in acknowledgement of Career & Technical Education month, trustees recognized students from the district’s Robotics Programs, along with their sponsors Russell Reid from Montgomery High School and Eric Moons from Lake Creek High School.

Finally, to acknowledge the district’s commitment to music education, reflected by a long tradition of successful music programs across all secondary campuses, and to recognize Music In Our Schools Month in March, the trustees heard a performance from the newly formed Men’s a capella group from Montgomery High School, under the direction of Heather Orr and Emma Cockerham.  For nearly 40 years, March has been designated by the National Association for Music Education as Music in Our Schools Month. This March, music educators and students are celebrating music education in their school communities, demonstrating how the theme “I See ME in Music Education” resonates with them.
