Monday, Little Elm Mayor Curtis Cornelious and Little Elm ISD Superintendent Daniel Gallagher shared a prepared message on the police department’s Facebook page.
“Over a month ago, a student made an allegation against another student. We can say we immediately launched an investigation. After a careful and thorough investigation, it was determined there was insufficient evidence to prove any crime was committed,” the men read.
Gallagher said the school was prepared for a peaceful demonstration, but a disruption began when a group of students tried to force their way into a faculty member’s office.
“In the chaos, one student assaulted an officer. Another assaulted a female officer. Another student spit on an officer,” the mayor said.
Gallagher said an independent review of the district’s sexual harassment reporting process will be completed, along with a review of the response to the student demonstration.MORE NEWS: Delivery Drones Buzzing Over Some North Texas Cities
