Bossier Parish School Board Response
Nov 12, 2013 — From KSLA:
"The school board released the following statement regarding Presley's comments:
"It has come to the attention of the Bossier Parish School Board that an individual serving on the Board recently made remarks on social media sites. The individual's remarks do not represent the views of the Board or the School District. Bossier Parish School Board policy (BBBA) clearly states: 'The members of the Bossier Parish School Board shall have authority only when acting as a Board legally in session. The Board shall not be bound in any way by any action or statement on the part of any individual Board member except when such statement or action is in pursuance of specific instructions from the Board."
The statement goes on to say that, "As your elected representatives, we value the opinions and input, whether positive or negative, from all people throughout Bossier Parish and strive to act fairly and impartially for the greater good of the students and families we serve."
