The Russell Independent School District contacted local law enforcement about an incident involving a classified employee. In light of the investigation, the District suspended this employee and subsequently moved to terminate employment with the District. The Ashland and Flatwoods Police Departments are currently investigating this matter. The District will continue to cooperate with law enforcement. The District will not release specific information concerning its own investigation at this time.
The safety and security of all of our students is the highest priority of the Russell Independent School District.
