Homebuilders Association of Southeast Texas also calling on BISD leaders to resign
BEAUMONT - Another group is calling for the Beaumont Independent School District board of trustees and superintendent to resign.
The Homebuilders Association of Southeast Texas says it supported the $390 million BISD bond issue because it wanted new and better schools for the district.
The group says it expected the district to properly manage taxpayer dollars.
The Texas Education Agency has written a report, blasting the board and superintendent for what it says is the improper management of millions of dollars.
The Homebuilders Association says the building industry has felt the impact of the district's mistakes.
It says last year, Beaumont ranked last in Texas for new construction permits.
The group says the board and superintendent must resign to salvage what the association calls an already damaged reputation.
The Beaumont Board of Realtors, the Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce and LULAC are also calling for the superintendent and board to resign.
