Tina Kirby turns herself into authorities to face charges of failure to report child abuse.

DARIEN — A grand jury has indicted three school leaders in connection with a child abuse investigation at McIntosh County Academy.

Principal Terrance Haywood, assistant superintendent Larry Day and superintendent Ernestine Kirby are all facing a misdemeanor charge of failure to report child abuse. Kirby has also been charged with obstruction of an officer, a misdemeanor, and Haywood faces an additional felony charge of making a false statement.

McIntosh County Clerk of Superior Court records show the officials did not report alleged abuse between a teacher, Lori Quigley, and a child.

Quigley, who was arrested in April, is accused of having sex with two students from McIntosh County Academy. One sexual encounter took place at a Waffle House, according to investigators.

 

In April, a motion by the McIntosh County School Board to suspend the three officials was not seconded and they were allowed to keep their jobs.
