Detroit Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Connie K. Calloway today released the following statement on the ongoing investigation into the District’s Department of Risk Management:

“Members of the community and the media have requested information on the independent review of the Department of Risk Management’s operations. I have received the report from the District’s General Counsel, Jean-Vierre Adams. A preliminary review conference was held that included the General Counsel, Board President Dr. Jimmy Womack and me.

“As Superintendent, I will execute my responsibility to thoroughly review the full report and discuss the findings with members of the Detroit Board of Education, our attorneys and staff as necessary. Subsequently, a course of action will be decided upon. Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue to request information and are involved in an ongoing investigation into this matter. There will be no further comments on this matter until the full report is completed.”
