James Kirby is a bully and needs removed immediately

This petition had 1,359 supporters

We, the parents of Harrison County, hereby demand the immediate removal of Mr. James Kirby from his post as Juvenile Truancy Officer currently employed by the Harrison County Board of Education. We request that this matter be taken seriously and treated objectively by the BOE due to Mr. Kirby’s blatant disregard for the law and the rights of families in Harrison County.

Mr. Kirby targets children with diagnosed physical, emotional, and behavioral disabilities. Mr. Kirby does not comply with the new law that took effect June 2016. Mr. Kirby does not meet with parents exclusively to try and remedy truancy issues. Mr. Kirby does not visit the homes of children that he targets for truancy in an attempt to remedy said truancy. Mr. Kirby is untruthful when telling the courts of his actions before filing petitions against these children. Mr. Kirby treats children and their families with disrespect and indifference.

The undersigned is asking that a full investigation be initiated immediately in order to save disabled children from unfairly being dragged into court a batch at a time and stamped with a juvenile record. We ask that this matter be given the highest priority.  We further ask that immediate action be taken by the BOE in the best interest of Harrison County’s most vulnerable population.
