BISD Temporary Injunction hearing assigned to Judge Stephen Yelenosky in Travis County
AUSTIN - Judge Stephen Yelenosky of the 345th Civil District Court in Travis County has been assigned the Temporary Injunction hearing involving the Beaumont ISD and the Texas Education Agency.
The Beaumont ISD is seeking to prevent the TEA from installing a board of managers to replace trustees and putting in a new superintendent to replace Dr. Timothy Chargois.
KFDM reporter Leslie Rangel and Chief Photographer Troy Harper are covering the hearing. Watch KFDM and stay with kfdm.com for coverage and reaction.
The TEA is basing the takeover plan on what it calls vast financial mismanagement in BISD and a loss of public trust, among other things.
A Temporary Restraining Order that would have prevented the takeover has expired. The Education Commissioner plans to replace trustees with a board of managers and replace the superintendent, Dr. Timothy Chargois.
Monday the TEA confirmed the Education Commissioner's decision to lower the district's accreditation and elevate the monitor to conservator.
