CALL TO ACTION: Hawthorne Academy Student Reported Sexual Assault and was Suspended
YET ANOTHER CASE OF OUR CMS SYSTEM FAILING OUR STUDENTS
BACKGROUND: A student at Hawthorne Academy reported an alleged sexual assault and was suspended. The CMS Board has yet to comment on the incident, yet the CMPD have charged a minor with the crime.
