Loudoun County Superintendent Scott Ziegler remains in his job despite growing calls for him to resign
He spoke at a press conference on Friday to apologize for failing to keep kids safe
He promised sweeping changes to procedure, and told families: ‘My heart aches for you’
Beth Barts, 50, resigned from the woke Loudoun County school board on Friday
She said it was the ‘right decision for her and her family’ and that she was looking forward to ‘a return to a simpler life’
On June 22, Ziegler told a room full of angry parents the school had never received a report of a sexual assault in a bathroom involving a trans kid
Four weeks earlier, Scott Smith’s daughter had reported being raped by a boy in a skirt to her teachers
The school board insists it didn’t know about the reports when Ziegler made the comment
The superintendent of the woke Loudoun County school board has apologized for ‘failing’ to ensure the safety of students and prevent the alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl by a boy ‘wearing a skirt’ in the girls’ bathroom.
Scott Ziegler spoke finally on Friday about the explosive May 28 incident, in which the 15-year-old girl told teachers she had been raped by a boy who accessed the girls’ bathrooms under the school board’s progressive transgender bathroom policy.
He did not resign – as parents had requested – and instead apologized for ‘misleading’ them on June 22 when he told a crowded meeting that there had been no sex assaults on campus by transgender kids, and that predatory transgender people ‘do not exist.’
‘I regret that my comments were misleading and I apologize for the distress they caused families,’ he said.
‘To the families and students involved, my heart aches for you. I am sorry that we failed to provide the safe, welcoming and affirming environment that we aspire to provide.
‘We acknowledge and share in your pain and we will continue to offer you support to help your families through this trauma,’ he said.
Ziegler’s apology came as Beth Barts, a board member, resigned.
