WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

The Wichita Falls Independent School District was advised by the district's attorney to elect new members of its District Advisory Committee.

School officials could not confirm that a grievance filed by the Texas Classroom Teachers Association against WFISD’s District of Innovation Plan had anything to do with it.

The grievance filed back in January claimed WFISD’s District Advisory Committee did not comply with state law by not having representatives elected by teachers.

Dohn Larson, the Texas Classroom Teachers Association's Director of Legal Services, said creating the new committee is a positive step and resolves a major point in the grievance they filed.

Thursday, the newly elected District Advisory Committee voted in favor for the District of Innovation plan.

The board is expected to vote on the plan Tuesday, April 11th during Special Session. That meeting starts at 12:00 p.m. at the Education Center.

Larson said the Texas Classroom Teachers Association "looks forward to the meeting and the board's careful consideration of the impact of the plan on the district."
