Concerned parents in the Beaumont Independent School District said they plan on filing an injunction this week against the district.

The Beaumont Heritage Society and a few residents said they are filing the injunction to have the old South Park Middle School saved.

Attorneys are fighting the demolition that is a part of the $389 million bond passed in 2007.

Attorneys said the district is ignoring the first amendment.

They said over 2,500 people have petitioned against the demolition and say the BISD board of trustees have not heard the issue in a public meeting. BISD has not returned our calls for comment on the issue.
