Crook County School Board Makes Decision On Brumble Complaint

PRINEVILLE, OR -- The Crook County School Board voted at a special meeting Monday to have board chair Jessica Brumble receive training on board members’ roles and responsibilities, following a parent complaint made against her last month.

After a two-hour executive session to determine the course of action, board member Scott Cooper presented a motion to release some details of the complaint, “Madam chair, I moved to authorize the district administration to release a copy of the investigator's report to the public in compliance with the Oregon Public records law, after redactions are made in compliance with COPPA”. [Ed. Note - Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act]. The motion passed unanimously with vice-chair Jennifer Knight, and board member Steve Holliday. Two other motions on addressing the complaint did not pass.

Cooper said the incident is a learning opportunity, “This whole incident is regrettable very much…for the pain that caused various people. I do know that everybody is doing their best. So, trying to figure out a new situation with new players, new rules, how we all navigate with this, with each other. So, I hope everybody can find ways to demonstrate grace along the way, none of us are perfect, mistakes happen.”

Brumble and board member Cheyenne Edgerly recused themselves from deliberations, but were present at the meeting to hear the decision.
