An article was recently published in the local news and on social media regarding allegations made toward the McCreary County School District along with specifically named administrators. Lawsuits are an arbitrary process that are brought as a means to express a perceived grievance. As a result of this information being provided to the public without the provision of an opportunity to respond by a McCreary County Board of Education representative, the McCreary County School District is publishing the following press release:
The McCreary County Public School District board and staff members take the issue of bullying very seriously. The District provides training to its staff on this issue every year. Further, the District has policies and procedures in place for addressing bullying complaints. Through implementation of these policies and procedures in the schools, School District staff strive to appropriately address any such issues which arise. Public school staff are forbidden by law from providing to the public personally identifiable information from any student’s educational records. Therefore, the District does not comment on any particulars of litigation involving students.
