BCS Superintendent Charles WilsonBCS Superintendent Charles Wilson  Charles Wilson, Superintendent of Bulloch County Schools, issued a press release Wednesday after it was announced that two assistant coaches at Statesboro High School are charged with having sexual relations with separate female students.  He said “Safety of our students is top priority, and while we are deeply saddened by the choices made by these faculty members, our school system will not tolerate such behavior by employees, employee misconduct of any kind, or any abuse of our students.

 

  “Within 24 hours of learning about this situation, both of the accused faculty members were removed from Statesboro High School, and their resignations were obtained. Neither will have further contact with any of Bulloch County Schools’ students on our campuses.

 

  “Bulloch County Schools performs extensive state and federal background checks on all employees.  Based on the background checks we conducted on these employees when they were hired, neither had prior records that would have prevented them from being hired by any school system in any state.

 

  “All new hires also go through an orientation session with legal counsel concerning Georgia’s Professional Code of Ethics for educators.
