To the Community of Newton ISD,
I want to take this opportunity to address some of the rumors and speculation that has been swirling about Newton ISD in regard to my employment. I was recently notified that a complaint had been received by the District regarding the performance of my duties. The District promptly informed me of the situation and I was placed on paid administrative leave while the Administration conducted their investigation, which is the normal, accepted practice in Texas. I can assure you that I am cooperating fully with the District during this matter. This issue is about my job performance and my conduct, this is NOT a racial issue. Furthermore, I am confident that, at the conclusion of the investigation, the District and I will do what is best for both Newton ISD and my family. I would respectfully request that the community allow the parties to address this situation. I do not want my status to create conflict or discord. We have worked too hard to lose any of the progress we have made as a campus.
I will not be making any further public comments about this matter until the investigation has concluded. I appreciate your prayers and support. Please respect the school administration and Board while they fulfill their duties under the law.
