It has policies that prohibit bullying, hazing and harassment, and there are serious consequences for violation of those policies. Those policies and the consequences for violating them are required by law and may be viewed on the district’s website. However, due to confidentiality laws at both the state and federal level, we cannot comment specifically on what has been reported or the status of the investigation. We can tell you, however, that the report was forwarded to the proper authorities and the district is cooperating with those officials, and will continue to do so. Students reported to have violated policies will be provided with due process as required by law and Board policy. Students who have been the target of hazing or harassment will receive assistance and support from the school district, as the process moves forward. Nothing is more important than the safety and security of every student in our school district. As explained above, the district is severely restricted in the type and amount of information it is permitted to disclose. However, if the district is authorized to provide additional information going forward, it will certainly do so. In the meantime, the district appreciates the support and understanding of the school community as we work to address this situation properly for all involved and as we endeavor to comply with all applicable law.
