The District is fully cooperating with law enforcement regarding allegations that a female student was assaulted on a school bus on March 9, 2017. The District immediately contacted law enforcement once school staff became aware of the incident. The District is very limited in these circumstances as to what it can properly say publicly because of the laws regarding confidentiality of student records.


We wish to make it clear, however, that the well-being and safety of all of our students is a top priority of the District. Under no circumstances does the District condone or tolerate any inappropriate conduct between students. If information is ever presented to District personnel that any such inappropriate conduct may be taking place, the District immediately investigates and handles each situation as appropriate, including notification of law enforcement.


The District will continue to cooperate fully with the Florence County Sheriff's Department and will take appropriate action consistent with the law and District policy in handling this matter.
