AISD Board of Trustees Recognized

Articles AISD 1-30-15

The AISD Board of Trustees was honored during a reception Thursday night for being named the 2014 Texas Association of School Administrators Outstanding School Board of Texas! The TASA Outstanding School Board of Texas award honors one school board from the state’s 1,027 independent school districts that has demonstrated dedication to student achievement and makes every effort to put students first.

Representatives from the Arlington City Council, Tarrant County, the University of Texas at Arlington, Tarrant County College and the Arlington Chamber of Commerce were on hand to make congratulatory remarks during the event, and TASA Executive Director Johnny Veselka presented the board with a plaque.

The board was also treated to outstanding artwork by talented Morton Elementary students as a part of January’s School Board Recognition Month. These students created original artwork based on this year’s theme “A Work of Heart.”

  1. We need to ask The Texas Association of School Administrators to recall this award.

    Our AISD officials should have been recognized and called out in their silence on the risks to AISD students/staff health with fracking so near to so many AISD schools.

    The Arlington Independent School District was straight up in hiding behind (outdated, nonexistent) state laws to protect the students and staff from URBAN DRILLING. Here is an audio of a phone conversation with Cindy Powell, AISD CFO, who gets the notifications of the drilling requests near the schools.

    Back on April 24 2011, I posted on Facebook to watch the last five minutes of an AISD School Board video when I spoke to the school board. I waited till almost midnight to speak to them about toxic drilling near my son’s school.

    During my speaking time, I also read a letter from a 9 year old pleading the school board to stop fracking by her school in Argyle TX because it was making them sick.

    Almost two years ago I filed an AISD abuse complaint #366 that was never addressed.
    The Texas Association of School Administrators = FAIL on this award.

    “Since 1971, this prestigious program has honored school boards that have demonstrated dedication to student achievement and that make every effort to put students first.”
    How can TASA restore my trust?

    1.) Soil test for radionuclides, high salinity, and heavy metals where mud farming may have been occurring near the schools.
    2) Start with Juan Seguin High School.
    3) Make public the results and then do an air study to see whats flying off the drill sites (particulates) into the lungs of the students on a hot, dusty, windy day when they are downwind to the areas that may have been mud farmed.
