BISD's Jessie Haynes' job on chopping block

12News has confirmed that Beaumont Independent School District Communications Director and Special Assistant to the Superintendent Jessie Haynes is on the district's latest list of employees facing a possible layoff.

Sources within the district told 12News that if the latest reduction in force plan is approved by the board of trustees, Haynes will be laid off.

Haynes returned to work at the district after an extended leave connected to an incident in which she claimed she was injured during a hallway altercation with a board member and a journalist.  The altercation ultimately ended with her conviction of a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of a public passageway.  She is appealing the conviction.

The BISD school board will consider action on the RIF at this Thursday's meeting.
