According to a report published Thursday in The Village Times Herald, Ward Melville principal Alan Baum sent home a three-page letter to the families of students affected by the AP History homework cheating incident last spring, explaining the steps taken to close the investigtion and indicating the district has moved on from the incident.
The report quotes Baum as writing: "I take great value in the lessons that we have learned and as we move forward, believe this experience will help our students acquire the skills and wherewithal to protect their digital lives." Baum declined to comment further when contacted by the newspaper.
However, not all parents are satisfied with the outcome. John Bucalo is one such parent, according to The Village Times Herald. While the district analyzed IP addresses and interviewed students to conclude the investigation, Bucalo said the administration didn't have sufficient evidence to penalize his daughter in the incident.
"I did research on rules and consequences. … This issue is not dealt with at all," Bucalo told the newspaper.
