“The arrest of three Coolidge staff for assault, including its Principal is a highly disturbing set of events. If proved true, the allegations are outrageous and completely unacceptable in any school,” said Ward 4 Councilmember Muriel Bowser.

“Chancellor Henderson has assured me that a swift investigation is underway and that she has ensured stable leadership during this time. I am confident in her interim plan for students and families. My office will be in constant communication with DCPS. We will be closely monitoring this investigation as it develops.”
