TOP BISD officials in Austin to meet with TEA Commissioner


Sources close to the investigation into the Beaumont Independent School District Friday confirmed to 12News that Superintendent Doctor Timothy Chargois and Board President Gwen Ambres are in Austin for a meeting with Texas Education Commissioner Michael Williams.

A spokesperson for the T.E.A. said the meeting was at the request of the BISD officials.

Our sources told us Chargois and Ambres were there to try to convince Williams not to take over the district even though it has been recommended by T.E.A. investigators.

Williams said he has not made a decision but hopes to soon.
