GVSD Officials To Meet With Parents Thursday Night
The district's lawyer will be on hand to answer questions about the employee who is accused of offenses against children in 2006 and 2007.
According to an email from Great Valley superintendent Alan Lonoconus, the school district solicitor will answer questions from parents at a meeting at General Wayne Elementary School at 7 p.m. Thursday.
The topic of the meeting will be the allegations involving Matthew Lewis, a member of the district's technology staff who was recently charged with indecent assault, corruption of minors and other offenses against children. The alleged incidents took place in 2006 and 2007 at a Boy Scouts camp, and Lonoconus has reiterated that the crimes were "in no way related to any conduct or behavior involving the Great Valley School District."
At a recent school board meeting, parents expressed concern that Lewis might have been in the elementary schools after the charges were disclosed to the district and before the charges were files. The superintendent and school board cited legal constraints as the reason they were unable to provide information beyond an official statement (video of which is attached to this article) and said the district lawyer would be able to provide more information at the Thursday night meeting.
