Parents concerned about sexual behavior on preschool playground

SLATON, TX (KCBD) -

Parents at Stephen F. Austin in Slaton are concerned about their children's safety after a group of preschoolers displayed inappropriate behavior on the playground.

Superintendent Julee Becker confirmed that the incident did involve sexual behavior, but she says supervision levels on school grounds, especially on the playground, have been increased.

Several parents of students with disabilities called KCBD NewsChannel 11, worried that their kids would not be able to defend themselves if touched inappropriately.

Becker said the students involved were disciplined accordingly and says it was a one-time incident. Josie Dabila, grandparent of a Stephen F. Austin student said she witnessed several events of inappropriate sexual behavior on the playground.

Becker says the increased supervision will prevent events like this happening in the future.
