Browning Springs Parents Seek Help from Board of Education

Board of Education General 05 300MADISONVILLE (10/22/13) — Two mothers of Browning Springs Middle School students asked for help during Monday's regular Hopkins County Board of Education meeting.

One parent voiced concerns about her child alleged being bullied at school; the other said her child's special needs are not being met.

SurfKY News is withholding the names of the parents for security reasons.

After the speakers finished, Superintendent Linda Zellich asked assistant superintendent Deanna Ashby to begin an immediate investigation.

Board Chairman Randy Franklin reiterated that the concerned parents and Ashby would be in contact no later than Tuesday morning.

However, Ashby began the investigation immediately after the board meeting concluded Monday night.

“I called both parents after the conclusion of the meeting,” said Ashby Tuesday afternoon. “I knew I had other meetings set up for this (Tuesday) morning, so I didn't want to wait. I have met with both of them today.”

Ashby also met with Jason Clark, director of district instruction for middle and high schools, and spoke with Browning Springs Principal Leann Wampler about the situations.

“We're going to do everything we can to make sure these students feel safe and comfortable at school,” said Ashby. “We're in the process of working through their concerns.”

Ashby said information is included in the student handbook regarding the procedure for addressing student safety and concerns. If any action is taken, it will be according to the school system's code of conduct, she said.

Board member Shannon Embry asked for all board members to be updated, when the investigation is complete.

The board's next regularly scheduled meetings are Nov. 4, Nov. 18 and Dec. 16.
