Coolidge ISD employee on leave, investigated

COOLIDGE, TX - Coolidge Independent School District Superintendent Dr Robert  Lowry has confirmed that one employee has been placed on administrative leave while an investigation into alleged misconduct at Coolidge High School is investigated.

A statement released by the district said the report was received Monday and the person involved was immediately placed on leave.

The statement said that local law enforcement agencies had been contacted and advised of the reported misconduct,  which was not specified in the statement.

Limestone County Sheriff Dennis Wilson Wednesday confirmed that his office had been made aware of the situation and said that an open criminal investigation was ongoing but no arrest had been made.

Sheriff Wilson said his investigators were continuing to gather information which will be presented to the District Attorney's office in "the very near future."

“The safety of our students and staff is always our top priority," stated Coolidge ISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robert Lowry.

“When allegations of this nature arise, our policy is to place the subject employee on administrative leave so that the District may conduct a thorough and objective investigation. Our District has taken necessary steps to ensure that student learning continues without disruption in a safe environment."

" CISD has assigned a qualified substitute to meet the obligations of the suspended employee. We appreciate the efforts of the Limestone County Sheriff’s Department which is working closely with our District. However, because there is an ongoing investigation, further comment is not appropriate at this time.”
