Bring Back Coach Guttery

This petition had 1,204 supporters

A well known, respected coach, mentor, father, and teacher has been suspended indefinitely from his current position. Though there were NO charges brought against Scott and the Sheriff's department dropped the case finding it "unfounded", Scott remains on suspension. We, Scott's colleagues, community members, students, friends and family, urge you, The School District of Lee County and the State Department of Education to consider his immediate exoneration. A foul on the basketball court between him and a student was grossly misinterpreted even with video evidence. Every other basketball program in Lee County has begun their summer practice schedule. This is no longer just about Scott --- the students and community are being hurt and negatively affected by this as they wait in limbo to find out what the school district/state decides regarding Scott's employment. We ask that the School District of Lee County and the State of Florida immediately reinstate Scott Guttery to his full time position of teacher and basketball coach.
