Piedmont High’s response to sex scandal—school assembly in December

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Officials at the affluent public high school in the Oakland hills say they’ll deal with a “Fantasy Slut League” scandal by holding a school assembly in early December to address reports that male athletes made a game of tracking sexual exploits with unknowing female students. They’ve already said no discipline was planned amid concerns that the scandal could impact college admissions of those involved.

On Monday, the Oakland Tribune reported this statement from schools superintendent Connie Hubbard (after the jump):

"This is a matter of school and family working together to support our teens to make good choices and to treat each other with respect and dignity.

"We wanted to communicate to families to encourage a dialogue and to inform parents of what we as a school community are doing to proactively address activities that are detrimental to the culture we want for our students.

"We are confident that our students are capable and willing to step up the challenge to be active participants in strengthening what is fundamentally a safe, respectful school community."
