TISD: Committee forming to address academic, discipline concerns

Tyler ISD School Board President Orenthia Mason spoke with KLTV today to share the district's plan to address public concerns about academic, as well as disciplinary, issues.

"Today, the need to address academic deficiencies and discipline in the Tyler Independent School District is still a priority. We wanted our citizens to know that it is a priority of the board and the Tyler ISD administration. This improvement is not going to be immediate. It will take some time. We're requesting that the community work with us as we take these difficult steps to do what is necessary to undertake the work of a transformational solution. We're looking at transforming our school district," Mason said.

Mason said that a committee is going to be formed to help facilitate positive change in the school district in the coming school year. She said the community is clearly eager to help facilitate change, so parents, teachers and other concerned parties will be a part of the committee, which will be formed in August 2013.

Mason also said that though the changes won't be immediate, as these are not  quick-fix issues, she is certain that it will be positive for Tyler ISD students.
