As President of the Perryton ISD Board of Trustees, I am providing the following statement on behalf of the District.
I received an allegation of sexual harassment from a school employee against 2 District administrators. District policy provides that all school employees shall be free from unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation. The District takes complaints of sexual harassment very seriously. An independent investigator has been retained at the direction of the District's legal counsel to conduct a comprehensive and unbiased investigation. The District has also implemented interim action calculated to prevent prohibited conduct during the course of the investigation. Following the conclusion of the investigation, the Board will determine what action, if any, is appropriate.
It is the District's policy not to disclose specific details or information about personnel matters. In the interest of protecting the privacy of all parties involved, further statements shall not be provided.
On behalf of Perryton ISD, thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
