Courting Disapproval? DISD Board to Meet With Attorney to Discuss Texas AG's Opinion.
|Woodrow Wilson High School|
Not surprisingly, trustee Carla Ranger -- who asked for the opinion in the first place -- has some thoughts on the matter.
Seeking "court approval" is not required in order to call a "special election," but it serves the purpose of providing a new reason to fight the decision of the Attorney General in court.
What is really intended is to find a court that will approve the term extension from three to four years that was found by the Attorney General to be a clear violation of the "plain meaning" of Section 11.059 (e) -Texas Education Code requiring any changes to be made "Not later than December 31, 2007."
Instead of setting the special election, the Board is being asked to go to court.
It appears to be another self-serving agenda of political deceit, defiance and delay.
