This guy is actually in a leadership role?

FCPS hopes it will all just go away quietly as if nothing happened. Nobody gives a shit except to preserve FCPS reputation--to make sure all of the academic numbers look good. Braband only acknowledged when Daniel Kim got arrested at his precious Fairfax High School (where his boys attend). He made no statement and issued no press release about Matthew Snell. Braband needs to go. Principals and other administrators need to held accountable and liable and then changes will happen.

It is concerning how everything quiets down and then just disappears, until the next situation occurs.

Has the assistant principal that ultimately ignored concerns communicated by others been held accountable?

Region 1 (Herndon High School and Madison High School) Pyramids supervised by Superintendent Douglas Tyson. Herndon is where the teacher filmed all of the students in compromising situations.

To confirm: Yusef Azimi has been removed from his administrative duties.

He is fairly new to FCPS with articles on the internet eluding to why he left his position as a HS administrator in Illinois.

Perhaps the FCPS Superintendent Scott Brabrand should employ the Region 1 Assistant Superintendent Douglas Tyson and the Executive Principal John Banbury to further investigate this matter as well as inefficiencies that exist at Thoreau Middle School.

I had several children attend there and then later Madison High. For whatever reason, this school has always had issues. The students did great academically, but perhaps under too much pressure. The counselors and administration just have never been equipment to handle the various aspects that have plagued this school.

My daughter attended when a young teen committed suicide by suffocating himself with a plastic bag due to BULLYING that was never addresses by administrators. So very tragic.

The principal at that school was told of abuse going on at that school but chose to not have it looked into, that principal let down that poor victem because he was told about abuse going on at that school last year.

Sad part is Thoreau is probably one of the best middle school in FCPS. Just imaging now what goes on in the other schools that us parents and the community dont even know about.
