PERRY, OK (KWTV)-  A Principal from Perry is suing the state board of education to get her teaching certificate back.

Kenda Miller is the principal accused of failing to report child abuse in a criminal case involving a teaching assistant at her school.

According to KWTV, the board issued an emergency order on February 23 to suspend the teaching certificate for Miller, who was charged with misdemeanor child neglect in a Noble County court just the week before.

She is accused of not reporting allegations of child abuse to DHS, even though several students at Upper Elementary School claim they reported the abuse to Miller over and over. Teaching assistant Arnold Cowen, 85, is accused of touching several students. inappropriately.

Miller is asking for the district court to issue a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction to lift the emergency order as it could threaten her employment with the school district or any future employment.
