Judge signs retraining order to stop BISD from paying Ozen coach who resigned in February
BEAUMONT - A Jefferson County judge signed a temporary restraining order, prohibiting Beaumont ISD from making further payments to a former Ozen coach.
Coach Keeath Magee resigned his position with BISD effective Feb. 19.
The following day, superintendent Dr. Timothy Chargois entered into a voluntary separation agreement with Magee.
In the agreement, BISD promised to continue to pay Magee his salary through June of 2014 so long as he agrees "not to make public disparaging remarks about the district."
KFDM obtained a copy of an email Magee sent Feb. 3, to Ozen principal Odis Norris.
He copied athletic director, Rodney Saveat and assistant superintendent Patricia Lambert.
In the email, Magee shares his concerns about Norris' recent criticisms of his job performance and about what he calls the harassment of his wife because she didn't want to teach the exact district six weeks test questions and answers to the students.
A hearing on the restraining order is set for April 16, in Judge Donald Floyd's courtroom.
