HISD To Air Board Meetings On Television Starting Tonight
Beginning at 5 p.m. tonight, April 9, meetings of the Houston Independent School District Board of Education will be aired live on HISD-TV on Comcast Channel 18 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99.
The hearing of citizens following the regular meeting will not be carried live since some of the speakers in the past have mentioned students by name without permission, which would violate federal privacy laws.
At 1 p.m. today, the board will meet with Heidrick and Struggles, the firm hired to conduct a comprehensive nationwide search for candidates to be the next HISD Superintendent of Schools. This meeting will be held in the conference room, which is not wired for live video and audio, and will be taped and aired later.
