LCS Statement 9/26/17 at 6:00pm
LCS has a responsibility to provide a productive educational environment free of distractions for our students, teachers, and staff. This responsibility means carefully balancing the civil liberties of our employees with the educational experiences of our students. In cases where the classroom environment is impacted, it is essential that we make decisions that support our students’ learning experiences. Following a meeting with Teacher Bressack on Monday, the teacher was released for the rest of the day with pay. In a follow-up meeting today, a mutual agreement was made to transfer Teacher Bressack to a teaching position in the adult basic education program.
“This afternoon I had an open conversation with Teacher Bressack. Given the complexity of this issue, we both agreed a different environment would be best for Teacher Bressack’s educational career and for the young students at Canopy Oaks. I respect the courage Chloe has shown through this ordeal and I am confident Teacher Bressack will do wonderful work with students in the adult basic education program. Although not easy, I honestly believe this change is best for everyone involved. ” –Rocky Hanna, Superintendent of Leon Schools.
At this time, Teacher Bressack respectfully declines any media interviews.
