At Tuesday’s regular meeting of the Jacksboro Independent School District’s board of trustees, citizens attended the meeting to go before the board concerning a level three grievance.

Trustees entered into a closed executive session to confer with JES Principal Angie Myrick before asking the approximately dozen Spanish-speaking residents of the district into the session.

After hearing from the complainants, the board continued the session which in total lasted nearly 40 minutes before re-opening the meeting for a vote on the matter.
