Charter group releases letter about FBI raid
BATON ROUGE - Administrators at a charter school in Baton Rouge raided by the FBI this week told parents today they were cooperating with the investigation.
The principal of Kenilworth Science and Technology School, Hasan Suzuk, sent a letter to parents which said the school "has always operated in a legal and ethical manner and will continue to do so."
FBI agents removed several boxes of items from the school Wednesday night, but wouldn't comment on the nature of their investigation. Suzuk said today the investigators requested access to certain documents and records, which they complied with.
The charter school is operated by the Pelican Education Foundation. Another school in New Orleans run by Pelican was shut down after allegations of sexual misconduct, but the state recently granted them a five-year charter to continue operating Kenilworth.
WBRZ News 2's Investigative Unit will have more on reaction to the raid coming up at 5, 6 and 10 p.m.
