One mother of an Iola student expressed her displeasure with school officials during the public forum section of Tuesdays USD 257 board meeting.
Dimity Lowell criticized school administrators for what she believes was their mishandling of an accusation she made last year against a teacher at Iola Middle School. The incident concerned what Lowell deemed inappropriate electronic communications and subsequent inappropriate physical contact between one of the districts teachers and her son (who is no longer a student at IMS).
Lowell did not broadcast the specifics of the case in the public forum nor she did name the accused, but she did express her belief that there was a systematic failure by the administration when it came to the states mandatory reporting rules as outlined by the Department of Children and Families.
