Statement Regarding WVVA News Story-June 15, 2022

In regard to the story airing on WVVA this evening, the person mentioned in this story was not an employee of Tazewell County Public Schools but did offer counseling services to our students while employed by another agency. This person has not worked within our schools for several years. To my knowledge, no one in the Tazewell County Public School system has been contacted by law enforcement. If we are contacted we will be more than willing to assist law enforcement in any way as they proceed with an investigation. While this alleged incident occurred in West Virginia we will always work to protect children regardless of state lines.
-Dr. Christopher B. Stacy, Superintendent of Tazewell County Schools
