Brunswick County School Board investigating possible assault on student

BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- The Brunswick County School Board is investigating a possible assault by a male teacher on a female student. Parents whose children go to North Brunswick High School in Leland say yesterday afternoon, a teacher hit a female student. Brunswick County School Superintendent Katie McGee said an incident did occur yesterday at the high school, and that the school board is investigating. The exact details of the investigation are not being released. She also would not confirm which teacher is being investigated but did say that assistant football coach Mike Dumas was suspended with pay Wednesday. Dumas was hired by North Brunswick High School in April of 1980. He is currently employed in the schools physical education department. We tried to contact Dumas Thursday but could not get in touch with him. One parent who knows Dumas says he is a good teacher and trusts his judgment and thinks the investigation will reveal he did nothing wrong.

Coach Dumas is a good teacher!

Coach Dumas is a very good teacher who goes out of his way to help us students succeed. He has encouraged many of us to get more serious about our education. What would anyone do if someone startled you from behind grabbing on you? It wasn't right for that girl to do that. There were witnesses that saw her sneak up behind him.

Leave our fellow Scorpion alone!!

Coach Dumas is not a bad person I had him as a teacher and he is always nice to everyone he met. Ya'll don't know what you are talking about. You dont need to be talking bad about him if you don't know what went on that day.

well If you were not there

well If you were not there you have no room to be talking. Dumas was a very nice guy. I never had his class but he was always cool to me. I think that he never meant to do what he did. So0o take it the way you want and I hope that Coach Dumas dont get into any trouble. LOVE YA COACH DUMAS ! ! !
