Sadly, our child was recently a victim of a bullying incident. After meeting with school representatives, we were not satisfied with their response nor their actions. Our only recourse was to contact our school board representative.
Despite being out of town, he responded promptly and promised results. Lo and behold, we received a phone call from Beaufort County School District Superintendent Jeff Moss the following day. Not merely a phone call, but almost an hour long conversation that left us comfortable with our child in her school’s care.
We feel this result would not have been possible without the swift actions of the District 6 representative, John Dowling. That being said, we thank all school board members for what they do for the students of Beaufort County.
