LA MARQUE — About 100 school district employees were told that the school board has “got your back,” as the superintendent and a pair of trustees addressed the Texas Education Agency’s decision to appoint a conservator to oversee the troubled school district’s operations.
“(Critics) say we can’t do it,” school board president Nakisha Paul told the gathering of staff members on Thursday. “They act like they don’t want us here... I know we can do it. But push and push.”
