The organizer of a parent protest in Harrington this week says an 11-year-old boy accused of molesting an 8-year-old boy is no longer at Harrington Elementary School.
We’re told the school district is still providing him an education.
SAD 37 Superintendent Ronald Ramsay says he can’t comment on the status of the student, who’s charged with gross sexual assault.
Parents say the abuse took place at a birthday party last fall.
Dozens of parents marched on the Superintendent’s office this week, wondering why the 11-year-old hadn’t been removed from the school.
Ramsay told them since it didn’t happen at school, or at a school-sanctioned event, his hands were tied.
He says the district plans to review policies on sexual misconduct, bullying and harrassment.
The parents of the 8-year-old have enrolled him and his younger sister in private school.
