Conroe ISD Named Forbes 2023 Best-In-State Employers for Texas
CONROE, TX -- Conroe ISD has been recognized on Forbes’ fifth annual list as one of its Best-In-State Employers for Texas for the second consecutive year. Conroe ISD is one of six school districts in the State to make the list.
Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey 70,000 workers at companies (minimum 500 employees) in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Participants were asked if they would recommend their employer to others, and to evaluate their employer based on working conditions, diversity, compensation packages, potential for development, company image and more. Participants also assessed employers beyond their own. All surveys were anonymous to encourage candor. As with all Forbes lists, companies pay no fee to participate.
“Conroe ISD is a great place to be because of our amazing teachers, administrators, and staff,” remarked Dr. Curtis Null, Conroe ISD Superintendent. “I’m so thankful to be able to work with each of them as we serve our community to educate students.”
