The Coatesville Area School District superintendent and athletic director have both resigned after bigoted text messages between the two came to light when a technician transferred their data to new employer-provided phones.
Officials at the suburban Philadelphia district in Chester County described the messages as “lewd, sexist, and rife with the N-word.”
The Coatesville school district is one of the most diverse in suburban Philadelphia, with a student body that is 42% black. The local NAACP has asked to be a part of the search for replacements for the two positions.
