EXETER (AP) — A New Hampshire prep school criticized for how it handled sexual misconduct and assault cases has sent an email to faculty members, students and parents saying it's hiring a director of student well-being.
Tuesday's email was signed by the Phillips Exeter Academy's principal and the president of its board of trustees. It says the student well-being director will have oversight of all matters regarding student safety, especially those involving sexual misconduct, harassment and assault.
A 2016 graduate is charged with sexually assaulting a female student. Two teachers have acknowledged sexual misconduct. And a former admissions officer was charged with sexual abuse but pleaded not guilty.
Hundreds of alumni signed a letter to the trustees saying the administration is more focused on concealing sexual assault than addressing it.
