Tucker County Parents Voice Concerns After BOE Rejects Recommendation to Expel Student

Posted: Updated:

Some Tucker County parents are voicing their concerns after the county's board of education decided not to accept Superintendent Eddie Campbell's recommendation to expel a student following an incident at a football game.

Campbell said the student committed an offense during a Junior Varsity football game on Oct 14.

Campbell said the principal at Tucker Valley Elementary Middle School can only suspend a student up to 10 days, and the board can reject a recommendation for expulsion if no offense occurred.

"I'm comfortable with the safety in that building, I've got two excellent administrators there, safety is at the forefront in everything they do. They work closely with their teachers to make sure our building is safe and our kids our safe," Campbell said.

"I understand parents' concerns, and want to reassure them that, as a dad, I'm comfortable sending my kid there," Campbell continued.

Campbell said no other information in connection with incident can be released due to the fact that the student involved is a juvenile.
