Beaumont Independent School District's Board of Managers received the finalized 2013-14 annual audit report on Thursday, March 26. This is the first audit to come to light since the managers were appointed to oversee BISD last summer by Texas Commissioner of Education Michael Williams. Williams installed the managers to take the place of an elected Board of Trustees found to have negligently allowed BISD to be pilfered of its resources by administrators under their watch.
