We need to ask The Texas Association of School Administrators to recall this award.
Call them in Austin at 512.477.6361 or 800.725.8272
The public was invited to a reception of head in frac-sand (drank-the-kool-aid) School Board/Trustees. They should, however, 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The Arlington Independent School District was straight up in hiding behind (outdated, nonexistent) state laws to protect the students and staff from URBAN DRILLING.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.
Please view the last five minutes of this video…sorry the video is no longer out there.
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 Argile TX because it was making them sick http://abcalliance.org/ .
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.”
