Press Release from the Calhoun County Board of Education:


February 1, 2018

Legal constraints prohibit us from disclosing or discussing particular student disciplinary actions. However, published reports regarding recent events at Alexandria High School may have created a misimpression regarding the school’s rationale in responding to the situation in question. Students, parents, and the public may be assured that the Calhoun County Board of Education remains firmly committed to guaranteeing its students equal educational opportunities in all phases of school administration, including student discipline. Our investigation to date confirms that school officials have fully honored that commitment in this instance. The faculty and staff at Alexandria High School—and at all Calhoun County Schools—strive daily to provide a nurturing, fair, and orderly school environment that is conducive to learning for all students, and will continue to do so. Should any evidence come to light that suggests a departure from that standard in this or any other instance, appropriate remedial action will be promptly taken.
