Flagler Schools apologizes for singling out Black students

Flagler Schools Interim Superintendent LaShakia Moore has issued an apology an incident that took place with Black students.

Staff members at Bunnell Elementary singled out Black fourth- and fifth-grade students for an assembly regarding low test scores. The presentation highlighted disparities in performance on standardized assessments over the past three years. The PowerPoint, titled “AA Presentation,” outlined academic expectations and goals for students, including achieving higher scores and maintaining strong academic performance.

Moore acknowledged that while the assembly was not intended to be malicious, it was not in line with the values of the school district, the school board, or the community. She emphasized that students should never be separated based on their race and expressed the district’s commitment to achieving academic improvement for all students.
