Wilson issues letter to the public

Written by  Friday, 02 May 2014 09:56

  In the wake of the arrests of two Statesboro High School assistant coaches on chargessexual misconduct with two students, Bulloch County School Superintendent Charles Wilson has issued a public letter addressing the situation.

 

   In the letter he said the safety of the students and the trust of the community are of the highest importance and the system is cooperating fully with the investigation by the Statesboro Police Department. 

 

  Wilson said “Bulloch County Schools has zero-tolerance for employee misconduct of any kind or any abuse of our students.  As a result, both men were immediately removed from contact with Statesboro High students.  They no longer serve in their assistant coaching positions, and they are no longer employed by the school system.”

 

  He said extensive background checks on Luke Edward Parks and Jeffery Tyler Crowder found nothing that would have prevented them from being hired in any state.

 

  In addition to aiding police in the investigation Wilson said access to counseling is available to students and employees.  Also, all information that results from law enforcement will be used by the school system to determine what can be done to make the schools a better place for students the community.

 

  “As a parent and as the superintendent of schools,” Wilson said, “I want to assure you that we are committed to caring for our students at all of our schools.

 

  “Please join me in assuring everyone that it is always okay to step forward and tell the truth about what they may know.  We want all of our schools to be safe and nurturing environments for our children.

 

  “Thank you for your continued support of Statesboro High School and Bulloch County Schools.”
