Difference of opinion about role of new conservator
There appears to be a difference of opinion about the role of the new conservator who his working with the Beaumont school district.
The education commissioner elevated Fred Shafer from special education monitor to conservator.
Shafer will attend board meetings and work with the district during the takeover.
The education agency says he has the final say in decisions if he believes the district is not acting in the best interest of students, staff and the community.
But last night the superintendent said Shafer would not interfere and Shafer told us he wasn't sure he had the final say in matters.
Shafer will remain in place at least until a new superintendent and board of managers are in place.
