The Montgomery ISD Board of Trustees met on Tuesday, March 22, 2022 for a regularly scheduled monthly meeting.
The meeting began with a special recognition of our district’s Educational Diagnosticians. The week of March 7 through March 11 was celebrated as “Educational Diagnosticians Week” in the State of Texas. Our district diagnosticians support students receiving specialized learning services by identifying needs and ensuring that accommodations and best practices are implemented to serve each student. The individuals pictured above are instrumental to the district’s work to provide an excellent standard of education to all students and we want to thank them for their commitment to our students and families.
