“Irving ISD is extremely grateful for the Board of Trustees and their dedication to compensating our employees,” says Superintendent of Schools Magda Hernandez. “I would also like to thank our incredible staff. We appreciate their passion, time and dedication to our students. They are very deserving of this recognition.”
