Where Frederick County Public school officials have remained as transparent and forthcoming as policy and law allows, they cannot divulge names or situations of those involved.

School officials have confirmed to parents and staff that established procedures to thoroughly investigate each instance have been followed and appropriate actions have been taken in accordance with the code of Virginia and school division policy.

In each instance action has been taken to protect students and ensure that staff members allegedly involved have no further access to students.
