When asked if bullying is an issue in the district, he replied, "I would say, across the nation, bullying is an issue. To say we do not have bullying in Paulding County would be disingenuous."

He continued, "We are going to continue to support our students, continue to look at what we're doing in terms of bullying in this district, how we respond to it, [and] what our policies and procedures outline."

When asked what is being done immediately, he replied, "We are doing a lot of listening."

When asked about the district's slow response to the outrage, he replied, "I am not tone deaf...I encourage parents to speak to me."
