The McIntosh County Board of Education took no action in a called meeting Thursday against three school officials who were arrested and charged with failure to report suspected child abuse earlier in the week.
Law enforcement officials say McIntosh school superintendent Tina Kirby, assistant superintendent of facilities Larry Day, and McIntosh Academy principal Terrance Howard were aware that former teacher Lori Quigley was having sex with students in her classroom and other places and did nothing.
The media was ejected from the public meeting for about an hour while the board discussed the issue and were called back in just in time to hear a motion to suspend the three indefinitely fail because it did not get a second.
The superintendent and assistant superintendent attended the meeting.
