Loudoun County parents call for school leaders to resign following emails revealed concern sexual assault allegations

Parents are calling for the resignations of Loudoun County School Board members and Superintendent Scott Ziegler following the release of an email related to a sexual assault allegation.

The email showed Ziegler notifying board members of an alleged sexual assault a month before claiming he had no record of the incident.

On May 28, Ziegler sent an email to school board members that said, “This afternoon a female student alleged that a male student sexually assaulted her in the restroom.”

At a school board meeting on June 22, Ziegler said that to his knowledge, “We don’t have any record of assaults occurring in our restrooms,” according to Fox News.

Some have argued the protests are political, seeking to take down Gov. Terry McAuliffe in his reelection attempt for governor. However, parents are clear they are will not stop after the election ends, regardless of the winner.

The matter addresses the safety of female students on campus, and all students, in the alleged cover up of a sexual assault.

The protests will likely continue until serious change takes place, leaving Loudoun County in a much worse position that if school leaders had better addressed the original incident.
