CHESTER, S.C. (AP) — The superintendent of Chester County schools is refusing to answer questions about a state investigation into possible grade tampering or plans to change school security.
The Herald of Rock Hill reports (http://bit.ly/1QZBsQT ) Superintendent Agnes Slayman has ignored phone calls and emails from the newspaper’s reporters for weeks.
When a reporter started asking her questions after a school board meeting Tuesday, Slayman said she wouldn’t answer them because she didn’t want to.
The state is not releasing any details about its ongoing investigation into grade tampering in Chester County schools. The school system also has a dispute with deputies over providing security.
School Board Chairwoman Denise Lawson says she can’t make Slayman answer questions.
Slayman was hired to her $150,000 job in 2012.
