Auburn Community Unit School District #10 Statement

August 12, 2019

On Saturday afternoon Auburn Community Unit School District #10 was made aware of a video posted on the internet showing an individual making heinous statements in regards to slavery and the KKK (Ku Klux Klan). Administration immediately commenced a thorough investigation. This process was made more difficult than usual because we were made aware of the video on a Saturday afternoon while school is still on summer break.

The District has determined the video is from October of 2017, and the individual making the racially charged comments is no longer a student in our District.

Auburn High School will continue to engage and educate our student body in diversity and inclusion through activities and presentation in the classroom. Our goal is for all students to have the opportunity to receive an education in a safe and welcoming environment. The community of Auburn High School does not tolerate the kinds of remarks or actions displayed in the video and hopes to empower our current students with the knowledge and tools to help prevent an incident like this from occurring in the future.

The District will follow policies and procedures in place in regard to any current students involved in the video. That process will become a part of official student records and could only be discussed with the students and their parents/guardians.
