It has come to the District’s attention that concerns are being raised on social media about District employee Jerry L. North. The District is aware of the criminal charges that were filed against Mr. North yesterday, May 3, 2023, in the Miami County Municipal Court and understands that allegations underlying such charges are generally distressing.
The District has been responsive and cooperative in the investigation conducted by the West Milton Police Department and will continue to comply with its obligations under the law. The District’s various legal obligations prevent it from addressing many of the questions it is receiving from the community.
Please be assured that the District is, and always has been, committed to the safety and best interests of its students. We take that responsibility very seriously. To that end, it has regularly completed criminal background checks of all its employees and thoroughly investigated allegations brought to its attention, taking action where the facts demonstrate it is necessary and appropriate.
