Comment on the Columbus Alive Article

Bexley City Schools have a strict hazing and bullying policy, which we actively enforce. Like many in our community, we read the article and are deeply concerned by the content.


Bexley Schools was contacted for a statement on an article by Columbus Alive. The district responded to the news outlet’s request for a statement with an inquiry about the nature of the story. Based upon the description of the incident that was provided, we suspected that the incident occurred during the winter season but had few details. We immediately began investigating and found no evidence matching what we were provided. Given the additional information provided in the article, we will now expand our investigation. If you have specific information involving current Bexley students about the incidents reported in the article or other incidences of hazing and bullying, please report it at:

We remain committed to providing a safe and inclusive learning environment for each of our students.
