Remove Jimmie Nell Pollan aka Judy Pollan as superintendent of PISD effective immediately

UPDATE: There is a new situation that occurred on Monday December 3, 2018 where Mandy Hobbs called a meeting with Judy Pollan to discuss pep rallies and community involvement. Only the people in the room know what happened but there are allegations of unprofessional behavior and it resulted in the suspension of the PISD teacher. Many feel that this situation was blown out of proportion and that Ms. Hobbs was treated unfairly.

On August 6, 2018 a Pittsburg ISD employee was accused of sending an inappropriate text to a student. The story was initially aired by CBS 19. The next day, the employee resigned.


After being asked for a statement about the incident, Mrs Judy Pollan, Superintendent of Pittsburg ISD, stated (paraphrased) that "she was sure that this was an isolated incident" and that the employee's name "would not be revealed by this office."

No statement was made showing any concern for the victim of the alleged crime. No statement was made offering complete support for the victim. She even went so far as to say there was "no evidence of anything".

It would be a month after the investigation began, and after being turned over to the local sheriff office, before a criminal charge was made.

At that time, Jackson Boyd, aged 32, an employee of the school district was charged with a Class A Misdemeanor for "Sale, Distribution or Display is Offensive Material to a Minor". (https://www.facebook.com/108297185900741/posts/1896266433770465/)

When this arrest occurred, more details and information was obtained and after following up on leads, there was an indictment by the grand jury and a second arrest for a Class A felony for deviant sexual intercourse with a student enrolled at Pittsburg ISD (https://www.facebook.com/108297185900741/posts/1928303943900047/)

The Pittsburg Gazette ran a story in this week's paper detailing the alleged crime in detail. The Gazette asked Mrs Pollan for a statement. Her reply was "No, I do not wish to comment except to say that he was responsible for the website and Facebook pages. He was not considered an educator since he was not a teacher."

Mr. Jackson was at many events for the school district and was in close proximity at times to hundreds of students. If he doesn't fall under the umbrella of educator this opens the door for all other school employees such as cafeteria workers, substitute teachers, bus drivers, and support staff to walk away after allegedly destroying the innocence of PISD children, with no repercussions. We must not allow this.

The Superintendent has made it very clear that her concern is protecting this man and not once publicly offered any concern or support for the multiple victims of this alleged perpetrator.

We need a superintendent who puts the children of this community FIRST! They are precious and valuable and worthy of protecting and encouraging.

Mrs Pollan needs to step down immediately and let the criminal justice system work, and let someone else help the children of Pittsburg ISD focus on their education.
