The DISD Board approved pre-K charter partnerships in February of this year. However, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is requiring amendments to the contracts, and these amendments require Board approval.
It looked as though these contracts would be amended without discussion since at least two trustees must request to have an item pulled from the consent agenda for a separate discussion and vote. Trustee Foreman was joined yesterday by Trustees Johnson and Mackey, thus the charter partnership contracts will be discussed at the Board meeting this Thursday, June 27, 2019 at 6:00 pm.
For more information regarding what is at stake, please read former Trustee Audrey Pinkerton's latest social media posts dated June 21 and 24, 2019. You can read background information on the initial proposal in DISD here.
