CVUSD condemns misinformation

On Monday, Oct. 17, 2022, CVUSD sent out a letter from the district’s school board. The subject of the letter addressed numerous online campaigns that were spreading misinformation about Conejo Valley schools, their employees and district staff.

Among these campaigns, two voicemail messages were left for Superintendent Mark McLaughlin, one directed at the Board of Education and District leadership, and the other a death threat directed at McLaughlin specifically. In the letter, they detailed that at no point were any CVUSD schools or students threatened.

Additionally, the letter pointed out the recent behavior at district school board meetings as an example of the disregard for students and their education. At the end of the letter, CVUSD asked the community to stop spreading rumors and misinformation that affect both student and staff lives just to push a political agenda.

They also emphasized the importance of education in our community and how these campaigns actively disrespect public education.
