McCown Resignation on Amarillo ISD Agenda

Another trustee could be on the way out at Amarillo ISD.

According to an agenda posted for the Amarillo Independent School District, trustees will consider accepting Renee McCown’s resignation from the board during a special meeting on Thursday, June 6th. McCown’s resignation will mark the second resignation in the less than a month for the Amarillo school board, as school board vice president John Ben Blanchard resigned in late May.

During the meeting, school board trustees will also discuss adoption of a resolution for signatures on vouchers and payroll checks.

The meeting will be held at the AISD Education Support Center beginning at 5PM. For additional details, please visit
