News Release, Charles County Public Schools

The parents of several of the students who have accused their children’s classmates of sexual assault and harassment held a press conference on Monday, November 25, 2019, at 6 pm. Below are two Facebook Live videos that were streamed at the press conference.

The Charles County Public Schools have released the following statement regarding the content of the press conference:

“Our primary concern is the well being of the children involved in this incident and we will continue to be available to support all of the children concerned.

Incidents involving children preclude us from providing specific details, and we will always err on the side of protecting our students when faced with decisions about how much detail to share, even when sharing these details would support our actions.

Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) strongly disagrees with the statements made by parents of the girls during a press conference this evening. Their characterization of conversations and meetings with school system personnel did not include all pertinent facts. We have addressed their concerns and will continue to take appropriate action based on the facts.”
