New BISD teachers attend orientation
School may not start for a week in Beaumont but Beaumont ISD was alive with some newcomers Friday.
The district's new teachers --93 in all-- attended orientation over the last two days.
They gathered to learn district procedures, how to use classroom technology and what to do on the actual first day of school.

School starts for students on August 26th.
