PRINEVILLE, OR -- The Crook County School Board will hold a special meeting Thursday night to continue discussion of a complaint made against Board Chair Jessica Brumble. The allegation, which was not made public, was first raised at Monday’s meeting.
Brumble told the board she wants an investigation, “I would prefer executive session as my minor child is also in these allegations. So, for her protection in executive session, I think would be best. My minor child is being addressed or attacked by an adult. And there was a lot of mentioned members in that complaint that are Crook County school district employees.”
Board member Cheyenne Edgerly agreed an investigation is needed.
“I believe after looking at some things that it's a blatant lie and there's evidence, clear evidence that it's not true and there was slander brought against board chair Brumble,” Edgerly told the board.
The Board called for an executive session to discuss the complaint on December 18th and noted they need to bring in legal help to guide the process.
Tonight’s meeting at the district office starts at 6 pm.
