Board of Managers

Beaumont ISD

More than a year after reports of widespread, educator-sanctioned cheating on standardized tests at the Beaumont Independent School District were submitted to the Texas Education Agency, the governmental entity has yet to release findings from any investigation into the matter. Also under review for just as long are reports of BISD staff committing attendance fraud to rake in millions of dollars in unwarranted state and federal funding, with teacher-supplied evidence handed over to the TEA to assist in its investigation.
