GIPS investigation continues on Engleman situation

The Grand Island Police Department has concluded their investigation into reported inappropriate actions by an Engleman Elementary staff member and will not be filing criminal charges in the case. We thank the GIPD for their help in ensuring our kids are safe in our neighborhood schools.

Now that the GIPD has finished their work on the matter, GIPS will continue with our investigation. While the GIPD focused on whether criminal behavior occurred, our continuing investigation will focus on whether the staff member has violated district policies or GIPS expectations for conduct. The staff member will remain on administrative leave until we conclude our work. We will make further announcements upon the completion of our district investigation.

We would once again like to thank the students who reported their concerns. We encourage any student who feels something inappropriate is happening to report it to an adult. We also appreciate the Engleman staff who followed district reporting protocols in place to keep students safe.
