PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The director of human resources for Portland Public Schools was under investigation when she quit last month.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports it is unknown why Kylie Rogers was under scrutiny, but records show the district hired an outside lawyer to investigate her.

Rogers declined to answer questions when contacted by the newspaper, and a district spokesman declined to say if Rogers had been asked to quit.

Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero praised Rogers' work when announcing the departure July 25. Rogers' responsibilities were given to an interim director the same day she put in her resignation.

Documents show Rogers told Guerrero that she decided to quit because managing the heavy workload had become too hard on her family.
