Whoa: School fails to notify parents when trans teacher allegedly threatens to shoot children
Florida parents are a wee bit upset with their children's middle school for failing to provide them with crucial information about the safety and well-being of their children. On March 24th of this year, the school resource officer at Fox Chapel Middle School responded to a report from school leadership that a transgender teacher made statements about harming himself and possibly shooting students. The teacher goes by the name Ashlee and is in the process of transitioning from male to female, but was born Alexander Renczkowski.
This is all according to an incident report obtained by Moms For Liberty.
\u201cParents were NOT notified after a trans teacher allegedly threatened a mass school shooting prior to the Nashville massacre https://t.co/Srj9NTixCo\u201d— Daily Caller (@Daily Caller) 1681401995
According to the report, Renczkowski admitted they had “bad thoughts” but denied threatening to shoot the kids. The school district's mental health coordinator conducted a threat assessment on Renczkowski and determined he did not meet the criteria for the Baker Act, a law that allows the involuntary institutionalization of mentally ill people. Afterwards, a deputy collected three guns and ammo from Renczkowski's home.
So that's bad enough. But even worse is Renczkowski was back in the classroom the next day. And parents weren't made aware any of this had happened until more than a week later. And most didn't even find out from the school - they read about it in a local news story. Several parents told Daily Caller the school only contacted them about the incident after it made local news.
Police declined to acknowledge the investigation until yesterday in a press release that states, "On 03-24-23, the HCSO was notified of, and did investigate, an event at Fox Chapel Middle School. The investigation revealed that no criminal offense(s) occurred; therefore, no arrest(s) could be made.”
And maybe there really wasn't any threat here. But the stonewalling around the incident and refusing to give concerned parents details only leads to speculation of a coverup. Some parents cited concerns over the teacher taking cross-sex hormones, and how that could impact their behavior. Which is a very valid point, given that no one is allowed to speak of the potential side effects of taking unnecessary, mind-altering hormones.
At the end of the day, it shouldn't matter how a person "identifies" when it comes to the safety of kids. The kids come first, always.
