Skelly and Kappeler-Hurley said they would be unable to discuss the topic of dating violence, how schools are trained to handle these situations, what resources schools have available to them or other topics related to the implementation of policy without at the same time revealing specific confidential student information.
"This is based in the need to be confidential about student information," Kappeler-Hurley said.
Skelly commented: "I am uncomfortable adding more scrutiny of the students involved in the situation."
Skelly instead provided general written information about school policies and prevention efforts related to sexual harassment. He also said he didn't think it was appropriate to run this story at this time, citing the ongoing Office for Civil Rights investigation.
