BLACKWOOD, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 10/04/12 -- The following is a statement in response to misconduct charges, from John Golden, Black Horse Pike Regional School District Superintendent.
Let me be clear, we have zero tolerance for sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior of any kind. As educators and community members nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our students.
The principal, vice-principal and three teachers involved have been removed from the school and placed on administrative leave.
The Black Horse Pike Regional School District is cooperating fully with the Camden County Prosecutor's Office. In addition, we have initiated a comprehensive review of our existing policies, protocols and training and education materials to prevent this from happening again at this or any district school.
We are notifying all of our families through our district news alert system and making counseling support services available to any student and family as needed. On an interim basis, the four vice-principals at Triton High School will take on the responsibility of day-to-day leadership, in consultation with our Central Office Administrative Team.
