LISD School Board Warns Against Hazing

More charges have been filed in the videotaped drunken hazing incident in suburban Chicago. This time it's some of the parents who are in trouble. After weeks of investigation, police have traced liquor store receipts to two mothers. Police allege one bought two kegs of beer, while the other allowed her home to be used for underage drinking.

Authorities say the investigation is far from over, and that more charges could come in the days ahead.

But, hazing is not limited to big cities like Chicago. You might recall a hazing incident here in Lubbock, just before school started last August. At the time, girls who organized the event claimed it was an annual tradition at Coronado High School.

So at Thursday night's meeting, the last day of the school year, LISD is reminding parents of its position on hazing.

"This year we wanted to make sure the parents know that from an administrative standpoint at central office, that there is district policy that prohibits hazing," said Dr. Fred Hardin, LISD Deputy Superintendent.

The school board says it is not responsible for events that happen off campus or during summer break. However students involved in questionable activities, such as hazing, could be subject to prosecution by local law enforcement.
