CCSD's Martin, Not SOA's Cook, Has Some 'Splaining to Do

In the Charleston County School District, is communication so poor that the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing? We seem to have that question answered.

Despite the district's denials of cover up regarding its knowledge of any shenanigans by an infamous School of the Arts algebra teacher, Principal Cook is in the clear. Put the blame squarely on Lou Martin, one of ex-Superintendent McGinley's favorites. See education-officials-charleston-county-school-of-arts-principal-did-alert-bosses-about-teacher-student-relationship .

No doubt Principal Cook is thanking her lucky stars for the permanence of emails; otherwise, she might be out of a job. While the district can claim it received no telephone call, it can't explain away her missive to Martin. Those pesky emails again!
[CCSD] Officials backtracked . . . , saying [CCSD attorney] Emerson didn’t know at the time that an email existed showing that Cook contacted her then-boss, former Associate Superintendent Louis Martin, about the matter in April 2015. Cook also reported the allegations to Martin by phone the previous fall, but the district had no record of the call, district spokeswoman Erica Taylor said.
So Lou Martin dropped the proverbial ball. Don't you wonder what else he ignored?
