Statement from Supt. Bills about Recent Social Media Post

The District became aware of a recently posted picture on social media on Wednesday afternoon. It was very similar to one posted in February of this year. An investigation began immediately. Our goal is to conduct a thorough investigation to hold any involved party responsible.

West Genesee finds this act, and any similar, to be deplorable, vile, and unacceptable.

As Superintendent of West Genesee Schools, an educator of many years, and a community member I’d like to make it clear that we are in support of all of our students – especially those who have been historically marginalized. Any acts of intolerance will not be tolerated here at West Genesee. Putting any members of our school community in harm’s way physically, emotionally, or mentally is unacceptable.

We take seriously our responsibility to provide each and every member of the school community a meaningful, caring, challenging, and above all else, safe, learning environment each and every day.
