Superintendent Gunning issues a statement to strongly oppose personal attacks and fear tactics by anyone attempting to persuade the professional business of our public institution.
LESD Values Civil Dialogue and Diversity of Perspective
Superintendent Jodi Gunning
It has come to my attention that the names of our staff members and volunteers who served on the Diversity Empowerment Committee (DEC), as well as screen shots from their personal Facebook pages, have been posted to social media as individuals to “get to know.” This even included personal information about someone’s partner and child.
Litchfield Elementary School District denounces any attempts to intimidate or threaten. We strongly oppose personal attacks and fear tactics by anyone attempting to persuade the professional business of our public institution.
We are working closely with law enforcement partners to ensure the safety of all of our stakeholders. We expect a respectful and professional environment that values civil dialogue and embraces diversity of perspective.
Our diversity, equity, and inclusion work will continue. We invite staff, families, and community members of all backgrounds and perspectives to join us in focusing on academic excellence, well being and preparedness for all students.
