The Ponca City Public School System has issued the following statement:

On Wednesday, September 23, 2020, the Ponca City Public School District was made aware of submission of an arrest warrant for one of its employees, a former employee, and a former volunteer.

Immediate and appropriate action was taken by the school district. The District fully cooperated with the Ponca City Police Department throughout the investigation. The District always works to ensure state and local laws and board policies are followed, and if violations are found, they are quickly addressed.

Nothing is more important than the safety and security of our students and employees, and we will be vigilant in our efforts to protect them. The District does everything it can to provide a safe learning environment for students and staff.

Because of this, the District promptly investigates all allegations of wrong doing and takes appropriate actions based on the specific facts. Because this is an ongoing legal issue and due to personnel confidentially rights, the District cannot make further comment.

You may direct any further questions to the Ponca City Police Department.
