A Washington County school board member has been censured by the board for his recent actions at a county school campus and has been, for the remainder of his term, prohibited to enter any school campus in the county without proper supervision.

The Board of Education met for a called meeting at David Crockett High School to discuss and take action on an ethics investigation of allegations against board member Keith Ervin.

At the meeting, Director of Schools Ron Dykes reported to the board that an allegation of inappropriate conduct had been made on Oct. 5 against Ervin by a staff member of David Crockett High School. Being out of town at the time, Dykes asked secondary supervisor Bill Flannary to investigate the incident. Flannary interviewed the principal and four teachers of the high school. He reported to Dykes that Ervin had entered a Crockett classroom and was observing a discussion between a teacher and approximately 15 students.
