Community Leaders Support EPISD Board of Managers

Many of us are interested, of course, in the current difficulties at EPISD. Here is a letter from El Paso community letters to the Department of Justice and the Texas Education Agency expressing support for a Board of Managers who, in effect, replace the current school board:

Senator Shapleigh emailed this message with instructions urging people to contact the Department of Justice:

"We have learned that the Department of Justice is taking comment on EPISD.

Specifically, the issue is how the community views the removal of the Board and installation of the new Board of Managers.

I have submitted a strong letter to DOJ sharing my view that the current EPISD Board has no trust and that a new Board of Managers is necessary.

I hope that you will contact DOJ and submit your opinion as well.

Here is the contact information:

*JOI HYATT 202.307.3109

*Email at: (Please insert the submission number in the subject line of your email or the server will reject your email. Here is the submission number: 2012-5818.)

Please deliver your strong message today about reform at EPISD.

Con ganas!

Eliot Shapleigh"
