Plez Atkins files grievance with BISD


12News has learned that Coach Plez Atkins has filed a grievance against the Beaumont Independent School District.

Atkins says he does not want a payoff, he wants his job back.  Atkins is the coach Dr. Chargois recommended to the board to be the head football coach at Ozen High School.

Chargois withdrew the contract offer after the board voted to hire Atkins, and following a 12News report that showed Atkins had lost his teaching certificate for three years based on allegations of improper relationship with a student.

Atkins said the court cleared him and that he had made Chargois aware of his situation, something Chargois has yet to confirm or deny.

Atkins quit his job in Houston after being hired by BISD and immediately started working at Ozen.

He said he was given keys and a school ID, and Atkins says he has not formally been fired by BISD.
