TISD Employees Fired After Skit

An inappropriate skit has lead to the dismissal of a group of Tyler ISD employees. The TISD spokeswoman said the skit happened March 29th during an after-school celebration at Bell Global Communications Academy. It was meant to honor the school's teacher of the year. However, TISD tells us, the skit included negative stereotyping and negative remarks on students and staff from another TISD campus. As a result, the employees will not be returning to campus next year. Officials would not specify if any teachers were involved.
