As you may be aware, on Wednesday, September 13, we, the Board of Education of Carroll County, were notified that Dr. Kenneth Fischer, a teacher at West Middle School, was arrested and is facing charges in Fairfax County, Virginia, on four counts of solicitation of a minor.  We are deeply concerned by the recent allegations of improprieties by one of our teachers.



We take allegations of any crime against children very seriously. As a Board, we want to assure you that a complete and thorough investigation is being conducted by law enforcement. Even so, we have taken steps to retain an independent investigator to thoroughly review our policies and procedures. We believe that this added measure will ensure we are doing all we can do as a school system to protect our children.



While we may be bound by privacy laws, rest assured that our investigation will be as transparent as we can possibly make it. Thank you for your patience during this difficult situation.

Devon Rothschild, Board Pres.
