  The recent arrests of two paraprofessionals for inappropriate conduct with students and the principal at Statesboro High School for failing to report their conduct prompted Bulloch County School Superintendent Charles Wilson to say more must be done to protect the students from such misconduct.


  Jeffery Tyler Crowder was arrested April 30 for allegedly having sexual conduct with a 16 year old female student.  May 1 Luke Edward Parks turned himself in on felony charges of sexual exploitation of children and sexual assault.


BCS Superitendent Charles Wilson BCS Superitendent Charles Wilson   Principal Marty Waters was arrested May 9 for failure to report child abuse.  He reportedly was told of suspected child abuse as early as March.  He later resigned.  The board of education later declined to offer him a contract for the upcoming school year.  He entered a not guilty plea and requested a jury trial.


  Wilson said all employees sign a handbook annually that states school employees and principals are required to report child abuse.  He said they have a "legal and moral duty" to protect the students. 


  Even so, he said, more must be done and the system is looking at ways to better train employees to recognize and assess suspicious behavior and respond properly.
