AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has denied jurisdiction in the case of the complaint filed against an Amarillo Independent School District school board member.
It comes after the resignation of Amarillo High School’s volleyball coach, Kori Clements.
In the TEA’s response to Dr. Henson, it states, in part:
The TEA said that process is to first file a complaint with the school principal, then the superintendent and finally with the the school board before the it will consider the issue.
When NewsChannel10 asked Dr. Henson what’s next, he responded, “I’m far from done.”
He said he plans to start at the bottom and file a complaint at level one, per the TEA’s recommendation.
NewsChannel10 also spoke with a representative of a group called “Parents for Transparency” today.
The group plans to put the pressure on Amarillo ISD by calling for an outside investigation into Kori Clements’ resignation.
