Trustees to honor John Preston on Monday

LISD Superintendent Dr. James Wilcox praised the six-term incumbent for his years of commitment to the students and education professionals, thanking him for his service to the Longview community.

"It has been a pleasure to work with Mr. Preston for over nine years," he said. "Mr. Preston always placed the students and employees of LISD first in every consideration and decision he made during his 18-year tenure as a board member. I consider John a friend as well as a colleague and wish he and his family the best in future endeavors."

Place 6 incumbent Ted Beard was unopposed and will serve another three-year term on the board.

Later, board members will administer the oath of office to Bauer and Beard and will reorganize officers for the coming term.

Other items on the agenda include discussing the 2016 Preliminary STAAR End-Of-Course and Grades 3-8 Score Reports, as well as consideration of an application for the 2016-17 Optional Flexible School Day Program.

Trustees meet in the boardroom of the LISD Education Support Center, 1301 E. Young St. The next regular meeting is tentatively scheduled for July 13.
