At the August 21, 2017 San Marcos ISD Board of Trustees Meeting, Trustee Miguel Arredondo made a motion (seconded by Trustee Anne Halsey) to approve a list of proposed SHAC members. The Trustee changed the list that had been previously received by the Trustees by striking Naomi Narvaiz’s name and adding additional names. Trustee John McGlothlin challenged the fact that there seemed to be two process to get on the list 1) application process through the district and 2) email Miguel. He also pointed out that Trustee Miguel had done “selective adjustments to take people off.”
