Floyd County School District, Georgia
On September 22nd 2021 I had to reach out to the high school administrators after my 9th grade daughter informed me she had been sexually harassed almost 1 week earlier. While the school administrators had been aware of the sexual harassment, they did not notify me, instead leaving that decision up to my minor child to tell me or not. The VP, who spoke with my daughter in a supply closet, stated that if my daughter did not wish to tell me, she could always reach out to her to discuss the matter. In the meantime, the perpetrator was permitted to attend classes with my daughter and any time she reached out for help, she was met with disregard or taken into closed offices to discuss it with a male staff member, only to be sent back to the same class as the boy afterwards. The boy was eventually suspended for 2 days but only after he had grabbed another female student’s buttocks.
