Texas Education Commissioner to visit BISD Thursday


The Texas Education Agency has yet to release details on Thursday's visit of Texas Education Commissioner Michael Williams to Beaumont.   His visit to the Beaumont Independent School District follows a recommendation by TEA investigators to take over the district.

Commissioner Williams will have the final say, but a TEA spokesperson told 12News not to expect any major announcements Thursday.

What we do know is that BISD board trustee Woodrow Reece says he is scheduled to meet with Williams at 1 p.m. and trustee Mike Neil told us he and trustee Tom Neild will meet with the commissioner at 2 p.m.

The meetings are scheduled at the region five offices inside Edison Plaza in downtown Beaumont.
