MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Officials with the Alabama Department of Education say an investigation report about allegations of sexual misconduct in Selma's public schools could be finished in two or three weeks.

 

Chief of Staff Craig Pouncey says

 there have been lots of allegations. He said most have not been substantiated, but there are a few concerns the department's investigators are still trying to validate.

State Superintendent Tommy Bice notified Selma officials June 13 that the state department was looking into allegations of inappropriate sexual activity between school employees and between school employees and students.

 

The letter came after the April arrest of Selma High School teacher LaTanglia Williams on charges accusing her of sexual misconduct with a student. She's on paid leave. Her trial is scheduled for December.
