Former local educators penalized

  • Follow Latest News

A state ethics panel has approved penalties against two former Spirit Creek Middle employees after investigating allegations of a sex scandal at the school.

On Thursday the Georgia Professional Standards Commission approved sanctions against former Principal Sharon McAlevy and former teacher Denise Ogden, said Gary Walker, the commission's deputy executive secretary.

The commission was originally considering whether to ban the two educators from teaching in Georgia, but Dr. Walker, who also heads the commission’s educator ethics division, said he could not say whether that penalty remained.

The commission began its investigation in April after accusations that Spirit Creek staff members were engaged in a love triangle and were having sex on campus.

The Richmond County school system began an investigation in October. Ms. Ogden and Ms. McAlevy resigned before the internal investigation was complete. The school system did not discipline either of them.

Four other school employees were disciplined as a result of the investigation.

Why can't Dr. Walker say whether McAlevy and Ogden have been banned from teaching in our state?
