Hitchcock Independent School District
Office of the Superintendent
by Garrett Bryce
Friday, January 29, 2010

Hitchcock Independent School District Trustee Shirley Price has promised a written apology to students she addressed about issues related to sex during a January 15 gathering at Crosby Middle School.  However, Price has taken a vacation and the letter will not be sent until her return.

Hitchcock ISD Superintendent Dr. Mike Bergman has issued a letter to parents apologizing for the presentation given by Price, noting
that the event was scheduled to motivate students for upcoming state assessment exams.

“During the presentation, very sensitive and sexually specific information was shared with the students,” Bergman said. “The speaker, a Hitchcock ISD board member, spoke at last year's eighth grade promotion and did a wonderful job; however, the content of the presentation on Friday (January 15) was off-target and objectionable.” Letter
