Murray, Ky., April 25----Coy Samons, Murray Independent School District superintendent, released the following statement regarding the potential misconduct of an MHS classroom teacher.  

An unauthorized recording device was discovered by two employees at Murray High School. After an initial inspection, the Murray Police Department (MPD) was immediately contacted (per MISD Board Policy) and is leading the investigation.  

This afternoon, a notice of suspension with pay pending further examination was delivered to an employee.  According to information provided by the MPD, the individual has received several criminal charges. The Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB) and the Kentucky State Police (KSP) were contacted by school personnel. 

I want to assure our MISD families that when unfortunate events such as this occur, I will take action to protect our students and staff.  The situation in no way defines Murray Independent Schools.  Over 250 dedicated employees report to work on a daily basis to provide the educational and emotional support that our students deserve.  This incident was addressed swiftly through a coordinated effort of Murray Independent Schools and the Murray Police Department.”

School safety is the top priority of the MISD and we will continue to provide a safe and nurturing environment for students.”
