Brunswick County School Board facing new lawsuit

READ MORE:
The Brunswick County School Board is facing a lawsuit from another set of parents concerned about an educator's behavior. Robert and Kathy Frye have filed suit, accusing school officials of not disciplining former West Brunswick High School teacher and coach David Arrowood, despite knowing about his 'inappropriate behavior' with their daughter. Arrowood pleaded guilty to sex crimes last year. The Fryes are represented by the same attorney who is representing the parents of Windy Hagar. The Hagars filed a similar suit against the school after Windy married her coach. A statement released by school superintendent Dr. Katie McGee says, "Mr. Arrowood was suspended by school officials from his professional duties on April 12, 2006 and ordered not to be on any school property thereafter. The Board of Education took official action on June 20, 2006, and dismissed David Arrowood." A defense to the lawsuit will be provided by the North Carolina School Boards' trust.
