The New Caney school district on Friday handed out special checks aimed at helping the morale of district employees.

District administrators and school board trustees handed out $600 checks to all full-time district workers. Last July, the school board passed a resolution regarding these checks, during a time of uncertainty about state education funding.

"We didn't give any raises last year,. So we're really excited about giving this lump sum payment to our employees for a job well done," New Caney ISD Superintendent Kenn Franklin said.

Those who received the checks had to have been employed at least 90 days and still employed today.
