Crockett County CCSD Superintendent Raul Chavarria announced Tuesday that Ozona High School Principal Cash Jennings has resigned effective immediately.
Chavarria issued a statement saying:
“I would like to inform you that Mr. Cash Jennings has resigned his position as OHS Principal. I will be assuming the duties as OHS Principal and will be assisted by Mrs. McWilliams and Coach Taylor to ensure that all of the needs of the students, staff and parents are met. OHS will continue to follow the same procedures and policies as set forth by the CCCCSD Board of Trustees. I want to assure everyone that all employees with CCCCSD are in good standing and are here to serve our district and community.”
In a statement Jennings said he was resigning due to a recent problem with a coworker, and that he felt the problem was ignored.
He said he did not feel that his concerns or requests were taken seriously, and that he was never given the option to speak for himself or share his story.
“To the town of Ozona and the students, staff and community I have grown to know and love, I wish you all the best and have until this school year loved the time I spent here. I hope you have the best year. While I am deeply disappointed, I cannot be a part of it, I know God’s plans for us are for good, to prosper us and not to harm us. I will miss you all! God Bless,” Jennings said.
Jennings sent the statement in a email to OHS and OMS staff members, as well as posting it on his personal Facebook page.
Jennings was named OHS Principal in May after spending two years as principal at Ozona Middle School.
Prior to working in Ozona, Jennings taught eighth grade math at Lee Middle School in San Angelo. Prior to that he was a teacher and coach in Sonora.
