Dr. Kevin Smith, superintendent of schools
Dear Parents and Caregivers: Within the last several days my office has received a number of calls and emails regarding an individual who is going door to door in Bethel purporting to represent the Bethel Public Schools as an "intern."
This morning I contacted the Bethel PD and alerted them to this. Lt. Kennedy investigated and learned that the individual in question has a permit to conduct sales and works for a company based in Omaha, Nebraska that sells books and other "educational materials."
Please be advised that this individual does not represent the Bethel Public Schools or the Bethel Board of Education. Bethel Public Schools has not evaluated any of these materials and is not endorsing them. The Bethel PD has been in contact with the salesperson and has advised her to stick closely to her script so that community members clearly understand she is not representing Bethel Public Schools. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.
Kevin J. Smith, Ph.D.
