San Angelo ISD announces Engaging Equity Public Summit on September 15th

On Tuesday, September 15, 2020, San Angelo ISD will hold two in-person summit sessions as a part of the Engaging Equity process in consideration of the retention or renaming of Lee Middle School. These sessions are open to the public and will include a morning session from 11 am - 1 pm and an evening session from 6 pm - 8 pm. 

To participate and provide input in the summit, members of the public can join us in-person at the West Texas Rehabilitation Center Conference Room at 1925 University Ave, San Angelo, TX 76904. For the health and safety of our community, masks are required for the entirety of the event. 

Members of the public will also have the option to watch the summit via Zoom. A Zoom meeting identification link for the summit will be necessary. Members of the public can request the Zoom link by emailing communications@saisd.org by 5 pm on Monday, September 14, and the link will be provided by email. 

The summit will be led by Dr. Luz Martinez and Dr. Dawson Orr, and will include the capability to engage in both English and Spanish language. Dr. Martinez is a bilingual educator with over 30 years of experience including three principal positions at economically disadvantaged, minority-serving high schools. Dr. Orr’s professional experience in education spans 40 years. He previously served as superintendent in Pampa ISD, Wichita Falls ISD and Highland Park ISD, and is now a college professor.

Feedback from the summit will be combined with other information and feedback gathered as part of the Engaging Equity process. 

Other Engaging Equity events planned include:

  • October 8: Advisory Council Design Team reviews the data to determine next steps
  • October 19: proposal on retention or renaming action taken to the Board of Trustees for consideration
