TEA appoints special education monitor

BISD
News Release

The Beaumont Independent School District was notified on February 14, 2014 by Commissioner Michael Williams that a monitor has been appointed based solely on the findings in the agency's report on Beaumont ISD's special education program.

The monitor assigned to the district is Mr. Fred Shafer who has previously served in the roles of Director of Special Education Solutions for Region 4 Education Service Center, Director of Special Education for Katy ISD and Coordinator for Special Education at Region 3 ESC. Mr. Schafer's role will include, but is not limited to, the following: Monitoring the development of a comprehensive plan to improve the effectiveness of the special education program; Monitoring the completion of the implementation of all activities of the improvement plan; Monitoring the immediate correction of the findings of noncompliance; Assisting the district in identifying the causal factors for noncompliance, as well as any barriers to improvement; Reviewing the certification/highly qualified status of teachers; Reporting progress to the TEA at regular intervals; Reviewing and assessing the need for training for school administration related to the identified areas of concern and developing a recommended training schedule, if necessary; Attending board meetings, including executive sessions; and Recommending any additional actions the TEA may need to take.

As noted by the commissioner, the appointment of Mr. Shafer as a TEA monitor does not relieve the district and its board of trustees of the responsibility to, at all times, operate the district in compliance with all applicable statutes and rules. The agency will be present at the March 20, 2014 regular board of trustees meeting to introduce Mr. Shafer to the members of the board.

We look forward to working with the Agency as we continue to meet the needs of our students, says Dr. Timothy Chargois, Superintendent of Schools.
