Report: 7 Zumwalt East Students Suspended After Sex Act on a Bus

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports seven students have been suspended after students encouraged a special education student to masturbate on the bus.

Seven Fort Zumwalt East students have been suspended following an incident on a bus involving a special education student. 

According to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the students encouraged a special education student to masturbate on the bus while returning home from a canceled JV football game last Monday. 

Fort Zumwalt Superintendent Bernard DuBray told the Post-Dispatch that the incident occurred after “some of the other kids goaded him on.”

The Post-Dispatch reports the other students recorded the incident on their cell phones, but DuBray said that the students deleted the pictures upon learning of the investigation. 

As a result, seven students—including the special education student—were suspended. The Post-Dispatch reports the school was tipped off after an unnamed student contacted a St. Peters Police Officer working as a resource officer at the school. The officer informed the administration and an investigation ensued. 

The Post-Dispatch report said the St. Peters Police Department also is investigating, but has yet to file charges. 

DuBray told the Post-Dispatch that two adults were on the bus but did not know the incident was taking place.

Sandra. The fact is, he WAS NOT PUT IN THIS SITUATION! He started on his own, and continued on his own. There was no 'goading' or encouraging. There was not one student who put him up to it. They were WRONG for participating, but the NEVER started it, or 'bullyed' him into doing it. If someone has Apergers, you said yourself they are very smart but lack social and communication skills. Lacking social and communication skills is in NO WAY AN EXCUSE for doing what he did. He wasn't a 'special needs student' two weeks prior when he beat another student up and was suspended for it, and he wasn't a 'special needs student' when he made the football team and learned positions and plays, and even got some playing time.

One more comment to Sandra... If lacking social and communication skills make someone 'special' then I guess most teenagers should be classified as special.

What those boys did was awful!! Whether the Special Ed student started on his own or not, the boys should've told one of the Staff members or one of the adults on the bus. There is more than one issue going on in this situation and everybody can pick it apart and blame the other person but those Football Players were flat out wrong and perverted for taking pictures and video taping.

I happened to have been on the bus at the time sitting right next to the coaches and NObody suspected or knewthat anyhting was going on that was inapropreate. I dont jnow what you guys think you know but you need to get your storys stright. Both of the coachs are respectable teachers. By no means are they STUPID! None of the cheerleaders knew what was happening and i am certain that if they did they would have brought attention to the problem. The coaches did NOTHING wrong and should not be held responsable for any of the blame. The footbal players were wrong to have egged there teammate on but, in the same respect i believe he didnt not know what they were telling him to do was wrong in anyway.
