Your presence is needed: Attend Thursday's Grand Prairie ISD school board meeting
Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,
I would like to bring to your attention a recent and concerning incident that occurred at the last Grand Prairie ISD school board meeting in December. A school board member was caught on a hot mic using inappropriate language towards a concerned parent, and another parent was escorted out of the building for expressing their views by simply showing his “We The People” tattoo that is on his forearm. The attorney and a school board member somehow felt threatened by the tattoo. This type of behavior is unacceptable and does not align with the values of our community.
That being said, it is now more important than ever for parents to attend the school board meeting scheduled for this Thursday, January 12th, at 7:00 PM. Your presence and participation in the meeting are crucial in ensuring that our schools and the school board are held accountable for their actions and that the concerns of our community are heard and addressed.
In addition, the decisions made by the school board have a direct impact on the education of our children and the future of our community. Your input and feedback are essential in making sure that our schools are providing the best possible education for our children.
It is our hope that together, as a community, we can create a safe and respectful environment for all parents and community members to voice their concerns and be heard. We hope to see you at the meeting on Thursday, January 12th at 7:00 PM to make your voice heard and contribute to the betterment of our children's education.
Here is the link to the agenda. Please arrive before 7:00 PM, so you have time to fill out a speaker card if you plan to speak at the meeting.
The meeting will be held at the GPISD Ed Center located at 2602 S Belt Line Rd, Grand Prairie, TX 75052.
