District Statement on Franklin Co. Sheriff's Investigation at Markham Elementary
Pasco School District has learned that charges have been filed against District employee Hunter Hoglen in response to an allegation of inappropriate contact with a Markham Elementary student earlier this year.
A district administrator reported the allegation to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and Hoglen was placed on administrative leave on March 21, 2019, in accordance with standard District procedure.
If true, these allegations represent a breach of our trust and a disappointing departure from our standards for all district employees. The safety of our students is the highest priority of our school and district staff members.
Due to the seriousness of the criminal charges, this is the only information Pasco School District will be providing at this time. Media outlets should direct any further questions to law enforcement or Franklin County Prosecutor Shawn Sant.
