Statement from TEA: No BISD trustee will be on the board of managers
AUSTIN - Statement from Gene Acuna of the Texas Education Agency:
In April, Commissioner Williams announced his decision to name a board of managers and interim superintendent for the Beaumont Independent School District. Since that announcement, members of the current BISD board of trustees have fought and delayed a transition supported by the community. The Commissioner will formally announce the names of those he has selected to serve at the appropriate time. However, there is no scenario where any current member of the BISD board of trustees will be part of the new board of managers. The people of Beaumont are ready to start the long process of restoring confidence in their local school district and truly prioritizing the needs of its students. That difficult work can best be carried out by a new set of individuals taking a fresh approach to the multiple issues facing BISD.
