Commissioner of Education issues statement about record review

Updated: Monday, June 16 2014, 04:45 PM CDT
Commissioner of Education Michael Williams issued the following statement today on the decision regarding the Beaumont ISD record review:


"Following a fair and impartial review of the facts, I am pleased that my decision to lower the accreditation status of the Beaumont Independent School District and to appoint a conservator in the district has been upheld.  Unfortunately, my decision to appoint a board of managers and an interim superintendent continues to be delayed in court proceedings brought forth by the current board at the expense of Beaumont taxpayers.  However, I remain confident that when the district's legal maneuvers have all been exhausted, a board of managers will be put in place to begin the overdue job of restoring community faith and confidence in the Beaumont Independent School District."

Statement from the Beaumont ATPE: The following is a brief statement
from the Beaumont president of the Association of Texas Professional
Educators (ATPE) regarding today’s ruling by the Texas Education Agency.
In addition to upholding the commissioner’s decision to lower the
district’s accreditation, the hearing officer also supported the
decision to elevate the current TEA-appointed monitor to conservator.

“I
applaud the decision by the TEA to elevate the current BISD monitor to
conservator,” Beaumont ATPE President Suellen Ener said. “I am hopeful
that the district court in Austin will allow the commissioner to appoint
a Board of Managers. If this board and this administration truly cared
about the district they would stop their costly appeals so we can start
the process of restoring our district and regaining the community's
trust.”Commissioner of Education issues statement about record review
