Da Vinci SignRevised October 18
The District issues the following updated press statement:

The recent events at the Da Vinci Charter High School as reported in the media are disturbing and do not represent the behavior we promote or expect from students. While we cannot comment on the specifics of confidential student matters, the physical and social-emotional safety of our students remain our priority. Students are safe and there is no health risk at the Da Vinci Charter campus or to anyone involved.

We take all allegations of wrongdoing seriously and we conduct thorough investigations and involve the police or other entities when appropriate. When wrongdoing is found to have occurred, disciplinary measures are applied and, at the same time, measures are taken to repair the harm within the community.

This recent case has been particularly challenging and we have communicated with all those directly involved and we have responded in the most respectful and dignified way possible. Those who were involved are remorseful and this is now a personal family matter and we want to respect the privacy of the families involved.
