Deshotel says TEA Commissioner coming to BISD Thursday to talk about staff recommendation
BEAUMONT - by Scott Lawrence
The Texas Education Agency staff has made a recommendation about the future of the Beaumont ISD, according to information State Representative Joe Deshotel has provided to KFDM News, and although Deshotel says he hasn't yet seen the recommendation and whether it calls for a takeover of the district, it is serious enough that TEA Commissioner Michael Williams is coming to BISD Thursday to meet with board members, staff and others.

Rep. Deshotel says he believes Williams will ask the board and staff why they believe he should or shouldn't follow the recommendation.
If the TEA recommends a takeover, Deshotel and State Rep. Allan Ritter will help pick a board of managers, instead of school board members, to oversee the district.
