Below is the joint statement from Ohio Hi-Point Career Center and Indian Lake Schools regarding the incitement of former OHP/ILHS FFA instructor Tanner Schoen.
Tanner Schoen, OHP/ILHS FFA Instructor, submitted his resignation on July 6, 2023. Today, we received information that Mr. Schoen was criminally indicted related to professional misconduct allegations.
Ohio Hi-Point and Indian Lake Schools are outraged by the accusations against Mr. Schoen. We hold our staff members to the highest code of conduct, and this alleged behavior is unacceptable and betrays the trust of our students, families, and communities.
The safety and security of students will always be our highest priority. We encourage everyone to continue to follow the district’s “see something, say something” practice so we can actively address issues and provide a safe learning environment for everyone. We will continue to focus on our students and support the OHP/IL FFA Chapter during their summer activities as OHP and Indian Lake look to hire an instructor for the fall.
