The school board president in Chippewa Falls is defending the decision to not tell parents about a credible threat at the city’s middle school last fall.
Board President David Czech sent a letter home to parents explaining that Chippewa Falls Schools didn’t tell parents about a student who was searching about pipe bombs and had a journal of detailed threats back in October because the police got involved. Czech says the student was a credible threat, but not an active threat. And he said the school districts didn’t tell parents because they didn’t want to start a panic.
Chippewa Falls Schools will hold a public hearing later this month to answer questions about the threat, and how the school handled it.
