There was a special meeting of the Wharton ISD Board of Trustees on Friday, Feb. 12.

The 4 p.m. inside the WISD Education Support Center was to discuss and consult with the school district’s attorney regarding legal issues concerning pending personnel investigation of a Wharton Elementary School teacher.

Several persons told the Journal-Spectator it is related to the “inappropriate incident” at Wharton Elementary School that WISD administration said it was “thoroughly investigating.” 

As of press time Friday, no arrests had been made regarding this investigation, which was reported to parents via a letter on Monday, Feb. 8.
