Seneca Football Coaches on Probation

The Seneca School District has released a statement informing the public that no suspensions are forthcoming for the coaches of the Seneca High School football team stemming from the June hazing incident while at a school sponsored sports camp. Instead, all coaches have been put on a one year probation. The board determined that the coaches had no prior knowledge of the hazing and took appropriate action after learning about the incident. Eleven Seneca High School football players have been charged with battery and/or assault against younger teammates. One student has been charged as an adult.

In addition to the decision handed down by the school board concerning the coaches, the administration is working on a new supervision policy for all coaches and teachers in the district with extracurricular duties. That policy has not yet been finalized.
