Racist cartoon prompts new policies at school
PLEASANT HILL, Calif. (KGO) -- An East Bay school is putting new policies in place after a racist cartoon was mistakenly published in its newsletter.
Officials at Sequoia Middle School in Pleasant Hill apologized last week after a substitute secretary mistook the image for a Peanuts cartoon.
The picture was actually evidence in a three-year-old hate crime investigation on campus.
To prevent future problems, the school says it will store crime evidence on secure computers and substitutes will no longer have access to the school-wide mailing system.
All publications must now be approved by administrators.
