“In the past 24 hours, there has been much talk in the news and on the Internet about the use of social media by our staff. Our mission is to prepare ALL students for success in college, career and community leadership. Let me reiterate our commitment that every child in the District is welcome and is to be treated with dignity and respect.

Some parents commented on the post by asked Scribner why Clark had been allowed ot keep her job for so many years — even though she had multiple complaints filed against her. One social media user wrote, “The whole situation already broke my heart for the students who were sitting in her classroom this year, reading the hateful messages she was spewing on social media. But to discover how many others are speaking out about the emotional abuse they endured from this same “educator” – some from decades ago! – is simply soul crushing.”
