WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (OCTOBER 1, 2021) — Following recent reports published this week, the Williamsport Area School District seeks to provide clarification on what has been publicly perceived as new developments in the Attorney General’s investigation of the 2018 Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, incident.

WASD wishes to emphasize that the investigation of the matter by the Office of Attorney General (OAG) was closed earlier this year after it determined insufficient evidence existed to justify any further action. The outcome of the investigation also was reported out through Lycoming County District Attorney Ryan Gardner’s office. References made to the case and its related search warrants in this week’s articles are not new and should not be misinterpreted as such.

WASD assisted and fully cooperated in the OAG’s investigation. The District stands by its position that it and its administrators followed all proper procedures and protocols to appropriately respond to the incident in question.
