Hi there. I realize you are constrained. But is there anything at all you wish to say regarding the Pearce matter?
I'd come up in person if that would be more convenient.
As a general rule, the District takes very seriously its obligation to ensure the safety and well-being of not only its students, but its staff. In cases where the District receives information suggesting that a staff member may have engaged in conduct that endangers the physical or mental well-being of our students, such matter is promptly and thoroughly investigated. If the results of that investigation lead to the conclusion that the staff member has engaged in misconduct, such misconduct is addressed, which may include the imposition of discipline, and action directed towards addressing any resulting harm to any student(s) who may have been impacted by the staff member’s conduct.
Once this action has been taken, it is the practice of this District, as well as every other New York State District that I am aware of, not to engage in a public dialogue regarding what happened. We do this to protect both the privacy rights of the students and the staff involved in the conduct.
