ARNOLD, Mo. (KMOX) – The Fox C-6 Board of Education released a statement today regarding allegations against two administrators accused of cyber bullying.
“Our policy is to expect proper relationships between Fox administrators and all members of the Fox community,” the statement reads. “The alleged statements in a cyber-defamation lawsuit are not consistent with that policy.”
When the district’s investigation began, on June 4th, the board says it suspended (with pay) assistant superintendent of elementary education Dan Baker and Angela Burns Baker, an assistant principal.
Both are now going back to work.
The statement says the Bakers each “loses two weeks of pay, forfeits vacation or sick days for the duration of the suspension, and is issued a job target relating to community relationships.”
It does not say whether they admit to allegations that they posted nasty and vulgar comments about parents on an online message board.
“We believe this resolution is in the best interests of the District based on current information,” the statement from the district concludes.
Superintendent Dianne Critchlow was also accused of taking part in the defamation. The district has said her decision to retire this fall is unrelated to those charges.
