MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY — The director of pupil personnel for the McCracken County School District, Brain Bowland, has been reinstated to his position.

He was originally charged with official misconduct on beliefs he violated Kentucky law by intentionally starting an internal investigation into accusations of criminal abuse by a student toward another student instead of immediately reporting it to law enforcement.

That charge was dropped last week. That was the only charge Bowland was facing.

Spokeswoman for the school district, Jayme Jones, says Bowland was reinstated into his position on Monday.
