WACO, Texas — Following a special session Tuesday, the Waco Independent School District Board of Trustees took no action in superintendent Dr. Marcus Nelson's employment.

The board adjourned Tuesday night around 11:50 p.m., after a closed session that lasted longer than four hours. The board will meet again Thursday night to continue the special meeting. 

Nelson was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge on March 6, the Robertson County Sheriff's Office said.

On Friday, he made a plea agreement to get his misdemeanor marijuana charge dropped, Robertson County District Attorney Coty Siegert confirmed. 

The special meeting began with a public forum, so residents could have their input heard before the board made its decision.

Following the public's comments, the board went into a closed session.

The closed session went on for so long, Waco ISD supplied journalists and others attending the meeting with snacks.
