The superintendent of Loudoun County Public Schools issued an apology and a school board member resigned on Friday as the district faces mounting backlash over its response to two alleged sexual assaults, one of which was allegedly carried out by a skirt-wearing male student in a girls' bathroom.

Superintendent Scott Ziegler apologized for saying during a June event that the Virginia district had no record of assaults taking place in its bathrooms. His comments came amid debate about policy changes related to self-identified transgender students. Ziegler said Friday that he misunderstood the question when he made the comment.

Ziegler also said he is "sorry that we failed to provide the safe, welcoming, and affirming environment that we aspire to provide." He told affected students and families: "We acknowledge and share in your pain and we will continue to offer support to help you and your families through this trauma."

Board member Beth Barts announced her resignation on Friday, though she didn't say whether it was related to the ongoing controversy. "This was not an easy decision or a decision made in haste. After much thought and careful consideration, it is the right decision for me and my family," Barts said.

Barts has repeatedly butted heads with Loudoun parents concerned about critical race theory and similar left-wing topics being taught in schools, leading residents to seek her recall. Brenda Sheridan, the school board chair, thanked Barts for her service and said that the position is expected to be filled during the board's December meeting.

Apologies are just talk, and talk is cheap.

I can get all the talk I want over at the Monarch Boarding House.

Yea he apologizes now. He has been busted being so “woke” that he would cover up sexual assault on a minor by a member of the wokes “protected” class. He is a lowlife and deserves to be charged in a conspiracy to cover up the rape and sodomy of TWO minors.

If they tried to cover up sexual assaults, resignation isn’t good enough. String them up!

“Superintendent Scott Ziegler apologized...”
I think we are way past apologies now. We’re in the “see you in court” phase.

I don’t think an apology is acceptable at this point. This isn’t a case of no harm/no foul. Not even close.

Also believe the prosecutor needs to be drawn and quartered, or at least step down after prosecuting Mr. Smith.

“Ziegler said Friday that he misunderstood the question when he made the comment.”

The most brazenly obvious and unabashedly ridiculous LIE yet.

Per another poster, this is the same school board member that doxxed parents on Facebook that expressed concerns about “Critical Race Theory” being inflicted on their children.

I hope they are all sued personally and bankrupted by their supporting the rapist.

Too little way to late.

Apply and implement what ever laws are applicable on these scum bags.

Parents in Louden need to pursue and not back down.
This is war and they are winning as indicated by this retreat.

Ziegler should never be allowed into or onto any school organization or facility, anywhere, ever

Very strange how transgenders have leaped over women on the protected class scale. What will feminists do now?
