NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Several gathered at the Nacogdoches Independent School District open school board meeting Tuesday to see if they would approve of a proposed school realignment that they said would benefit their students and teachers.

This realignment proposal is a response to the failed school bond vote in November.

After going back and forth about the plan, the school board decided they would not move forward with the proposed realignment plan and instead will come up with a plan during the 2016-2017 school year.

“Some of the board members didn't feel comfortable with it and felt like we were rushing it,” said NISD Superintendent Dr. Fred Hayes. “So we want to make sure we do a good job of investigating it and giving the board the information they need as well as polling our staff to make sure that they have some input into it.”

The school board also wants to hold off until the next school year because there is a school board election coming up. They feel the 2016-2017 school board needs to be the one to decide on the realignment.

The school board said they want to create a committee of teachers, as well as a committee of community members and parents that will help come up with the realignment plan.
