The Board of Education of the Central Valley School District would like to address certain allegations contained in recent Facebook posts relating to the School District and a student injury, which were posted by a parent of that student. The safety of students and staff is of paramount importance for the Board of Education. Further, the Board of Education is committed to preventing bullying of students and all types of discrimination in the School District. Federal law limits the ability of the Board of Education and School District staff to comment publicly about matters involving specific instances of student discipline. That said, please be assured that the School District promptly investigated the matters referenced in the recent Facebook posts and took actions in response that were warranted, proportionate and fair. The School District has and will continue to strive to create a school environment that fosters civility and respect among all students, staff and visitors.
