"The following behavior is prohibited and will not be tolerated: Discussing the Fox matter with Mr. Fox, his attorneys, representatives or anyone purporting to act on his behalf. Public comment offering speculation on insurance coverage. Public comment offering speculation on costs to the District relating to the Fox matter," Slocum's letter states.
It's not clear whether the district has the right to mandate silence among employees, but Slocum stressed the district had to proceed carefully.
"As Board members and or employees we are obligated to adhere to the policies and laws that govern us. The Fox matter will not hang over us forever and we all must remember what we are in place to do. We are not in our positions today to perpetuate one side of the Fox matter or the other. We are in place to oversee the operation of the School District."
