UPDATE, July 8: An outside legal firm hired to investigate harassment claims made by a former Las Cruces Public Schools board member made “no finding of mismanagement or improper conduct.”
That's according to documents obtained by ABC-7 on Thursday after submitting a public records request to the school district.
Terrie Dallman made the allegations against her fellow board members in a resignation letter a month ago, prompting LCPS to hire legal counsel to examine whether there was any validity to her claims.
Below are the findings of the law firm hired to investigate.
ORIGINAL REPORT, June 7: LAS CRUCES, New Mexico - Facing allegations of bullying and harassment by a former school board member, Las Cruces Public Schools officials decided at a special meeting Monday evening to launch an investigation into the claims.
When she resigned from the board last week, district two board member Terrie Dallman alleged in her resignation letter that she was a victim of "bullying and misogynistic comportment."
Dallman was the lone board member to vote against the selection of Ralph Ramos as permanent superintendent of the district.
On Monday, the school board voted to authorize Ramos and outside legal counsel to investigate Dallman's allegations against her fellow board members.
