Lawsuit seeks to force Manor ISD board president out

MANOR, Texas (KXAN) — A lawsuit filed Friday in Travis County seeks to push out Manor ISD board Desiree Cornelius-Fisher for alleged misconduct.

The lawsuit, filed by attorney Bradley B. Clark, says allegations and evidence of official misconduct against Cornelius-Fisher surfaced during an investigation into the events surrounding the recent resignation of superintendent Kevin Brackmeyer.

She has faced public accusations of misusing district money, interfering with day to day operations, and abusing her position.

On Tuesday, the school board OK’d a motion requesting the Texas Education Agency conduct an external and independent investigation of the entire Manor ISD Board of Trustees.

Prior to that, the board approved an external investigation into Cornelius-Fisher.
