Around the South

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – After students and parents called for his resignation over the mishandling of multiple sexual assault allegations reported by students on campus, Myers Park High School Principal Mark Bosco has been reassigned after eight years at the helm.

Two students came forward in the spring saying they were sexually assaulted near campus and said their reports were not taken seriously.

The district suspended Principal Mark Bosco with pay and an interim principal was put in place.

In a letter sent to parents of children at the school Wednesday, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System said Dr. Maureen Furr will continue to serve as interim principal until the vacancy is filled.

Furr has 30 years of various jobs in the CMS. She originally retired in 2019.

The superintendent announced a Title IX Task Force, which will focus on reports of harassment and assault.
