A school staff member blamed the death of 14-year-old student Adriana Kuch on her father and the bullying she suffered at school.
According to the staff member, the girl used drugs and got into trouble because of her father’s affair. She also said that the school had failed to provide her with the necessary services before she killed herself.
According to reports, the superintendent of the school where she was a student talked about the private pain of her family.
According to Mr. Parlapanides in an email, the girl’s father started an affair with a woman he met during her 6th grade, and he then moved her into his house. He also noted that her grades and choices started declining in 7th and eighth grade. The school had tried multiple times to provide her with mental and drug rehabilitation services, but her father refused.
After learning about the affair, the school official claimed that the girl’s mother committed suicide, which was the main reason for her poor choices. On February 1, Adriana took her own life after she was attacked by a group of girls in a hallway. In the video, which was posted online, the girl can be seen being hit with a water bottle and taunted by the other students.
The school’s superintendent made the comments after he posted a Facebook post in which he defended the school and its bullies, who may have beaten the girl. The post was met with angry reactions from the parents of students who attended the school. One of the parents said that he would not send his children to Central because of the bullying incident.
The girl’s father, Michael, said that the school did not offer drug counseling to his daughter. He noted that she had merely experimented with marijuana, which is a common form of illicit substance among teenagers. Mr. Kuch accused the school of blaming his daughter for her actions.
He also criticized the school’s superintendent for blaming everyone except himself for the incident. He said that the superintendent should resign because he failed at his job and suggested that he could get a job at Walmart. Mr. Parlapanides later told The Post that the death of the girl’s mother was unrelated to the incident.
According to Mr. Kuch, the mother’s passing several years ago had nothing to do with Adriana’s death. He noted that the school’s superintendent refused to talk about the incident involving the girl and her mother during their meeting on Monday. Instead, the two men discussed the boy’s return to school.
He said that he refused to talk about the boy because his daughter was already dead. He noted that the woman, who was his daughter’s mother, died in 2015 due to her addiction. He also said that the school officials failed at protecting his daughter.
This week, Mr. Parlapanides defended the decision not to call the police after learning about the incident involving the girl. He noted that it was against the school’s policy and that the students involved could have faced a “double-whammy” if they had done so.
