LCPS Hires Law Firm To Review Assault Allegations
Loudoun County Public Schools sent out an email on Nov. 5 informing the community that they have retained Fairfax-based law firm, Blankingship & Keith, P.C., on October 28th to conduct an independent review of the recent assault incidents plaguing Loudoun County.
This comes on the heels after Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares said at a press conference that he intends to open an investigation into LCPS’ handling of the assault incidents.
The entire email is featured below:
Dear Loudoun County Public Schools Families and Staff,
In recent weeks, we have been asked many questions about our handling of allegations of student sexual misconduct at Stone Bridge and Broad Run high schools.
We believe we have followed all mandatory reporting protocols and aided law enforcement to the fullest extent allowed in all investigations regarding these matters. We acknowledge that these matters need to be fully reviewed. Consequently, and with full support of the School Board, Loudoun County Public Schools hired Blankingship & Keith, P.C. on October 28, 2021 to conduct an independent review of these incidents.
Please know that this independent review is only one step in moving forward to help heal our school community. We will keep you up-to-date about the steps we take and the progress we make. Together, we believe we can make our schools a safer, more nurturing environment for every student.
Scott A. Ziegler, Ed. D.
