HISD Board expected not to approve upcoming budget, sources say

FOX 26 News has learned the board likely won't approve their 2019-2020 budget, which is set for a vote tomorrow. 

Sources tell us some members of the board are putting pressure on the Interim Superintendent Granita Lathan to add items to the budget the district simply can't afford. As a result of Lathan's refusal to add those items, a faction of the board is refusing to pass a budget Thursday.

We are told a notice was sent out by Board President Diana Davila alerting the trustees there will be a special meeting set for this Saturday at 5:00 p.m. Some board members say they are not planning to attend.
