My daughter is second year HS student in NJ. She is a Varsity Athlete in two sports, an honor student, and class representative.
She is goal oriented and has wishes to pursue playing sports in College. She is sweet, quiet and very hard working.
This week, a group of girls made an official complaint with the school saying that they had received threats on their cell phones from someone claiming to be my daughters cousin.
The school, without doing any investigation, stated that if any other complaint is made against my daughter, she will be investigated and possibly suspended.
I am fit to be tied. My daughter categorically had nothing to do with this. I have the cell phone number that these girls stated they received the calls from.
I tried in vain to talk to the school. I am at a loss in understanding how they could pass judgment without any proof?
My daughter is very upset that this incident will tarnish her fine reputation and possibly destroy her chances to play sports in College.
She is having trouble sleeping, eating, concentrating. She feels as though her rights have been trampled.
I am going to file a police report tomorrow. Interestingly. her accusers did not. I am fearful that the schools handling of this will only embolden
whoever is doing this. What can I do to protect my daughters reputation and clear her name. I am furious.
btw...i live in NJ
