The Berkeley County Board of Education released a final statement surrounding two pending lawsuits filed by parents of Berkeley County school students.
The statement explains the three former Berkeley County School employees accused of verbal abuse were terminated and reported to the state superintendent.
Part of the statement reads:
“The board prevented appeals through the public employees’ grievance process that may have resulted in successful appeals to the grievance board or the courts forcing the board to place these individuals back into Berkeley County classrooms.”
The statement also says:
“Although we share in the desire to bring prompt resolution and full disclosure of the details of this process and actions by the board, we ask the public to be patient with the judicial system and legal process. We are working to resolve these matters as quickly as legally achievable so that our community can heal.”
