Longview Superintendent Keeps Her Job

An east texas superintendent still has her job, even though the school board considered firing her yesterday.

Dr. Dana Marabel has been with the Longview I-S-D since January of 2003.

Her tenure with the district has been riddle with controversy, like two highly publicized fights and sub-par standardized test scores.

At last night's school board meeting, dozens of parents turned out to see if the board would terminate Marable.

After an hour and a half in closed session, the board chose not to vote on the item, allowing Marabel to keep her job.

Some parents were happy about the decision, others disagreed.

No word yet on why the board chose to forgo the vote.
