Earlier today we published a blog about the Worcester Police Department’s investigation into sexual misconduct allegations involving a member of the Abby Kelley Charter School cheering coaching staff and a player on the team. Our sources also reported about alleged abuse involving the child’s mother Meghan McLeod that was not reported by Principal Christopher Kursonis.
Since the blog was published McLeod has taken down her Facebook page and never returned our message. We have also been told my teachers at the school that Principal Kursonis announced abruptly last week that he was resigning. His last day is scheduled for March 3.
This hasn’t been reported anywhere else. It’s unclear if this is in reaction to the recent allegations, but the timing is interesting. Who resigns in the middle of a school year after being in the school for so many years? Other parents who have had daughters in the cheer program have reached out with stories of their own. We will update this story as more information becomes available.
