Laural O’Rourke resigns from 4J school board, alleges ongoing racism | #schoolsaftey

After months of board division and allegations of harassment, Laural O’Rourke has submitted her resignation from the Eugene School District 4J Board of Directors.

On Saturday afternoon, O’Rourke sent her resignation via email to current board members, 4J Superintendent Andy Dey and other 4J administrators. The email was titled, “A Black Woman’s Resignation from the Racist Eugene 4J School Board.” She forwarded the email to media.

Over the past year, O’Rourke has faced criticism from community members, ranging from disagreement with her votes on the board to outright racism in Facebook comments.

In November, she filed a complaint against board members and district officials alleging racism and harassment. That complaint was dismissed by the board. O’Rourke was the only Black member of the board at the time.
