Student Misconduct Referred To Law Enforcement

Kiona-Benton City School District staff were made aware that certain District students may have discussed a plan to harm another student. The matter was immediately looked into, the sheriff's department contacted and students were emergency expelled. Once the incident had been investigated and evidence gathered the matter was then referred to the District's School Resource Officer [SRO], a Benton County Sheriff's Deputy. After conducting a preliminary investigation, the SRO referred the matter to Sheriff's Department Detectives, who are conducting a thorough inquiry.
The District is concerned, at all times, and above all else, with the safety and physical well-being of its students. District staff reacted accordingly and promptly upon receiving information suggesting that a student may have been at risk.
Because of Federal Privacy Laws, the District is referring all further comment to the appropriate law enforcement officials.
