Jefferson County DA's Office issues response to TEA report
BEAUMONT - District Attorney Cory J. H. Crenshaw issues the following statement today in response to the Final Investigative Report by the Texas Education Agency recommending that the commissioner of education appoint a board of managers to take over the Beaumont Independent School District.
"We would like to take this opportunity to let the community know that now is the time for those who have knowledge of wrong-doing at the school district and wrong-doers themselves, to come forward. We are asking that all individuals with knowledge of criminal activity at BISD to meet with us, tell the truth, and agree to cooperate. Starting today and through the end of this month, my office and task force investigators will be available to meet with people who are willing to speak to us and consideration will be given to those that come forward during this time period. Change within the school district is imminent and this opportunity will hopefully allow for swift justice," stated Crenshaw.
