LCPS seeks to clarify action taken over Brian Damron’s teaching license
“LCPS central administration received a single complaint about Mr. Damron prior to his resignation [from LCPS] in early 2015. The complaint was reported to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at the time but did not result in criminal charges,” the statement reads.
The statement goes on to mention an additional investigation conducted by LCPS central administration regarding the complaint, but it was “determined that there was insufficient evidence to seek license revocation at that time.”
Then last year, the issue was again taken up by LCPS.
“When LCPS central administration received additional complaints and information regarding Mr. Damron in late 2016, a new investigation was conducted and a petition for license revocation was promptly filed. As a result, Mr. Damron surrendered his Virginia teaching license,” the statement concludes.
The statement is the latest development in the saga that involves Dr. John Brewer, the principal of Dominion High who has been on administrative leave since Dec. 3, 2016, following allegations that Damron made inappropriate and sexually-fueled comments to students during his time in Loudoun County. The band director, Damron, resigned from his new position in a Florida school system in late 2016 after similar accusations surfaced.
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office opened an investigation into Damron's time at Dominion High on Dec. 5, 2016. The investigation lasted a month, closing on Jan. 10. No criminal charges against the former band director are pending.
Brewer and another LCPS administrator wrote letters recommending Damron to prospective employees in Florida.
