Update on Incident Involving Rice Student at BHS Football Game
September 14, 2016
The District would like to thank all that have been working to address this incident in a timely manner. The Burlington Police Department acted quickly to identify the students involved, determine the origins of the online post and deploy a school resource officer to investigate the situation and calm tensions. The Chief of Police has noted that the sign was "deplorable" and "reeks of racism." The incident has not been deemed a hate crime.
Superintendent Yaw Obeng is in conversation with Rice Administration regarding an opportunity to engage in a Restorative Practices process, to bring together those involved in the incident in order to repair harm and restore relationships. We are pleased to move forward with Rice using this approach, working together towards a positive outcome for students and the larger community.
