HSE Schools to Make Improvements Following Completion of Inquiry

October 14, 2022

Hamilton Southeastern Schools has worked with local attorney Daniel E. Henke to lead a neutral, fact-finding inquiry surrounding a classroom incident involving a poster at Fishers High School. Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Stokes promptly initiated the independent inquiry back in August.
 
As a product of his inquiry, Henke developed a written report. The report has a significant amount of student information. The district does not have consent to release the report with this information.
 
HSE will use the findings from the report to create and build upon current procedures for the re-entry of students following a traumatic event.
 
Below is a summary of improvements that are being implemented.
  • School administration, counselor and/or school social worker will contact the affected student and family to offer a re-entry meeting to determine a plan for on-going supports and what information they are comfortable with sharing to create safeguards.
  • Notify appropriate teachers and staff to discuss instructional and social emotional supports needed, including changes to the classroom environment and/or student’s schedule.
  • School administration will provide oversight and regular check-ins with affected student and applicable staff to monitor student’s transition to school and report any possible stressors.

HSE is committed to doing everything possible to ensure all students feel safe, accepted and supported while in school, and supporting teachers in this endeavor. Additionally, HSE has already begun organizing a regularly scheduled meeting with local law enforcement and public safety officials to improve communications and cultivate the trust of the community.
