AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - Amarillo Independent School District Superintendent Doug Loomis has issued a response to the complaint filed by Dr. Marc Henson regarding the resignation of Coach Kori Clements.
Dr. Henson filed a formal complaint to the Texas Education Agency in March. In response, the TEA denied jurisdiction in the case of the complaint, saying the allegations should be filed directly with the school district.
Earlier this month, Dr. Henson filed additional complaints with Amarillo High School Principal David Vincent, Superintendent Doug Loomis and School Board President Scott Flow.
The complaint claimed Trustee Renee McCown wanted special treatment for her children. It also asked for the removal of Director of Athletics Brad Thiessen, Vincent, Loomis and McCown.
The response said that the complaint was filed months late, didn’t show any special harm to Dr. Henson and that nothing that the complaint claimed is true.
“Your complaint is entirely based on unsubstantiated hearsay documents alleging that a District Trustee ‘used her position of power to benefit [his/her children], and when this was no longer tolerated, [the Trustee] used [his/her] influence for retaliation,'" said the response.
The response continued, saying “the allegations in your complaint are simply not true.”
Dr. Henson has 10 days to appeal the denial.
