TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Thursday, Florida State Rep. Randy Fine revealed he was approached by “multiple parents” that a “boy, claiming to be a girl” used Johnson Middle School’s “open bathrooms policy” to take advantage of a young girl. The incident is claimed to have happened in the girls’ restroom over the summer.
“These parents – looking to protect their children – have made queries of the school district, including public records requests, to get to the bottom of what happened. Thus far, they have been stonewalled at every turn,” Fine said in a letter.
In the letter to Florida Education Commissioner Manny Diaz Jr., Fine said that he is “escalating” the matter to the state government because the district was “covering up a sexual assault that took place involving a teacher and a student.”
In August of 2020, former Commissioner Richard Corcoran slammed the Brevard County School District for “Failing to report” allegations against assistant football coach Kenneth Johnson Jr. from 2015.
“At that time, Brevard County Schools failed to report allegations of an educator’s predatory behavior to the Department of Education’s Office of Professional Practices Services as required by law,” the letter said, as reported in Florida Today.
“I have zero confidence that this alleged assault will be investigated openly. I suspect the politicians and bureaucrats are already working overtime, as they did with Johnson, to sweep it under the rug,” Fine said to Diaz Jr. “I know how seriously you take the health, welfare, and safety of our students, and know you will get to the bottom of what may have happened here.”
