Bryan ISD Releases Documents And Recordings Leading To Departure Of Former Superintendent Tommy Wallis

Bryan ISD officials Thursday night released documents and recordings that led to the departure of former superintendent Tommy Wallis.

Bryan ISD was not allowed to do the release until the appeal period passed for Dr. Wallis to contest a Travis County district judge’s ruling that allowed some of the materials to go public.

Materials that have been released includes the 234 page document composed by members of Dr. Wallis’s leadership team, also known as the “leadership cabinet”, stating Wallis violated the Texas state board for educator certification and Bryan ISD’s employees standards of professional conduct.

The cabinet stated their action was made “with the hope that the district will no longer suffer under the Superintendent’s totalitarian leadership and abuse of authority.”

More than half of this document is related to Wallis’s search for new jobs.

The leadership cabinet called on the school board to suspend Wallis with pay and have a comprehensive investigation conducted by an internal investigator.

Bryan ISD also released two recordings of conversations Wallis had with members of his leadership cabinet.

In a September 12, 2016 conversation with an administrator, Wallis repeatedly said no to a request involving BISD’s health insurance fund.

And in a September 14, 2016 conversation with another administrator, Wallis used profanity three times in describing a conversation he had with BISD school board member David Stasny.

In addition to materials released on Thursday, BISD previously released a recording where then school board president Doug Wunneburger told Wallis to consider a buyout.

The current president of the Bryan ISD school board, Mark McCall, was asked on WTAW’s The Infomaniacs before Thursday’s release of materials if the district is looking at recapturing any of the costs of Wallis’s lawsuit.
