Beaumont Independent School District news release

The Beaumont Independent School District Monday issued the following news release:

Central High School Band's Halftime Performance:

Beaumont ISD administrators met today with Central High School campus administrators and the band directors. The video from Saturday's high school band halftime show has been thoroughly reviewed to examine the appropriateness of the performance. While BISD leaders are confident the intentions of the band and band director were to raise awareness of voting and not support any candidate, a message has been conveyed about the importance of avoiding the appearance of physical attack and political satire that can be construed as bias.

Central High School leaders regret any act that appeared to some as a negative message and/or a political endorsement. Campus administrators and band leaders have been instructed to thoroughly examine how students plan to express their creativity as it relates to political rhetoric.

Central Medical Magnet High School Band and Fine Arts Program will continue its traditions of great and award-winning entertainment as the district remains focused on student achievement.
