TEA Gets Rid Of EPISD School Board Trustees

The El Paso Independant School District board of trustees will have to move over to make room for a new board of managers who were appointed today to oversee the troubled district.

EPISD School Board Removed by TEA

Michael Williams, a Texas Education Agency Commissioner, told Interim Superintendent Vernon Butler and board president Isela Castañon-Williams of his decision today, and while the current board of trustees are not technically being kicked off the board, they have no more power.

The school board has been under fire for not investigating district employees for their roles in former Superintendant Lorenzo Garcia’s TAKS test fixing scheme that landed him in federal prison for 3 years.

There has been a lot of back and forth about who is responsible for Garcia’s scheme not being found out sooner, but now it appears that the TEA has no confidence in the management skills of the current EPISD school board.

You can read more about the new board of managers who will be overseeing EPISD from our news partners at ABC7, and we’ll bring you all the up-to-the-minute details tomorrow morning on Mike and Tricia Mornings.
