LACKLAND ISD SOCIAL MEDIA STATEMENT CONCERNING CHANGE.ORG PETITION
Lackland ISD is aware of a petition filed by individuals regarding the Administration and a Staff member at Virginia Allred Stacy Junior-Senior High School. The petition inaccurately reflects actions taken by the District regarding allegations that were made by a student that involved conduct that allegedly occurred outside of the school setting. This matter was investigated by the Administration in accordance with District policy. While the District cannot comment or provide information regarding the investigation due to student privacy and FERPA, the District thoroughly investigated the allegations and worked with the families involved.
The District has policies in place to address claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation and bullying, and trains both students and employees on how to report, prevent and investigate claims made. Counseling is offered to all of our students. The District does not, and will not, condone or tolerate discrimination, sexual harassment, discriminatory harassment, racism, or retaliation by students or our employees.
The District takes seriously the allegations raised in this petition and has retained an outside organization to conduct an investigation of the previously unknown claims alleged in the petition.
Lackland ISD has high expectations of its students and employees. Upon completion of the investigation, the District will take appropriate action as deemed necessary.
