BISD Superintendent explains decision to pursue Reduction in Force
BEAUMONT - The Beaumont ISD has released a statement defending the Superintendent's decision to pursue a Reduction in Force.
The letter is in response to teachers organizations contending the district hasn't met the criteria for declaring financial exigency leading to a reduction in force.
In the letter, the BISD Superintendent, Dr. Timothy Chargois, says the pending layoff of as many as 300 employees is "the one thing that keeps him awake at night."
