James Johnson- Dean of Students
Hello all, Mr.Johnson here. I am currently the dean of students.
I personally am working hard with the school to help the victims related to this case and also trying to punish the criminals. As an administrator, I know that it is my business to help the students feel safe while they are at school. Like Kevin Giles said in his recent article, the youth are feeling the bite of the adder we call technology. This girl who had her nude photos hanging up in the locker room, is surely feeling the sting. Fact of the matter is though, that this boy is surely troubled that he felt as though he had to ruin her reputation by hanging the pictures up.
Truly what I am advocating for is having a school wide assembly to let these students know to not do these atrocities. They are representing our beloved school, and putting a bad name on our gorilla. Our pupils need to realize the horrible side affects of their actions. Oregon police chief Don Brown who recently had to deal with drinking pictures on myspace.com, remarked that "you can learn alot about your kids and your community [from myspace.com]." I truly advocate for these students to get punished. Don't do the crime if you can't pay the time.
