Officials with the Beaumont Independent School District are continuing their battle with the Texas Education Agency as they try to stop a TEA takeover of the district.
Board President Gwen Ambres and Board Trustee Janice Brassard are seeking an injunction to stop TEA Commissioner Williams from replacing the current elected board of trustees with an appointed board of managers.
If the injunction is granted, the TEA takeover would be postponed indefinitely pending a trial.
12News is in Austin for the Temporary Injunction hearing and will have updates throughout the day.
Shortly before the hearing was set to begin, a group of students held a rally outside of the courthouse to show support for the teachers and ask for steps to be taken to save the district.
