The Bangor School Department learned today that a Bangor School Committee member has been charged with a crime relating to use of an electronic device owned by the Bangor School Department. School Committee members are issued tablets by the School Department for use in carrying out their School Committee responsibilities. We expect School Committee members to observe the same requirements for use of electronic devices that are required of staff, including prohibiting any use that is illegal or in violation of other School Committee policies.
The School Department will fully cooperate with law enforcement, and will also investigate these allegations. Appropriate action will be taken based on the results of the School Department’s investigation.
