Following multiple phone calls and e-mails, the Sharyland ISD Superintendent is addressing concerns over a fall 2019 incident.
Dr. Maria Vidaurri released a statement on Friday saying in part,
Over the past week, the District has received multiple phone calls and emails regarding the incident and has been made aware of information that has been published on various social media outlets. Some of the information that has been published on social media has been inaccurate, based on false information, or has been reckless with regard to the privacy and well-being of individual(s). While the District would like to answer questions posed by members of the community and address some of the inaccuracies that have been published, the District must make it a priority to protect the privacy of our parents and students, not only pursuant to State and Federal Law, but out of respect and common decency toward those individuals. For those reasons, the District is unable to disclose much detail regarding the incident.
Vidaurri stated that upon learning of the incident, the district administration notified the Mission Police Department, Corpus Christi Police Department and Child Protective Services about the matter.
The statement also said that the district “meted out” punishment to all implicated in accordance with the student code of conduct, school district policy, and Texas Law, pending any additional results of the law enforcement investigation.
