Beaumont Independent School District administrators Monday met with the band directors and administration of Central High School to discuss a controversial halftime performance Saturday night by Central Medical Magnet High School's marching band.
"While BISD leaders are confident the intentions of the band and band director were to raise awareness of voting and not support any candidate, a message has been conveyed about the importance of avoiding the appearance of physical attack and political satire that can be construed as bias," says the district in the statement.
