BISD board to consider declaring a financial exigency in order to reduce workforce

BEAUMONT - Trustees with the Beaumont Independent School District will meet Thursday to vote on a resolution declaring a financial exigency.

If approved the resolution will most likely result in the layoff of employees.

The proposed resolution states that the financial resources of BISD are insufficient to support the district's  instructional programs and it also states the district is unable to finance the full compensation of staff for the current and next fiscal years.

BISD also blames the state it is in on a decline in student enrollment of more than 10% over the past five years.

Thursday's budget meeting starts at 6 p.m.

Several teachers have said they will be present at the meeting to protest the district's plans.  They blame mismanagement and corruption for the funding problems.
