Parents of traumatized students in the Uvalde, Texas school district have filed four complaints against the district’s superintendent, asking for his removal.

According to CNN, Superintendent Hal Harrell of Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District (CISD) is facing a threat to his job security in the wake of a damning report by an investigative committee of the Texas House that cites Robb Elementary School’s “culture of non-compliance with safety policies.”

Dr. Hal Harrell, superintendent of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District, addresses a news conference on Thursday, June 9, 2022, in Uvalde, Texas, to provide an update on the school shooting at Robb Elementary. As reported by (Eric Gay/)

Adam Martinez, whose son survived but is still traumatized by the incident, told CNN that he wants “accountability” from the superintendent on down.

Not locking doors and failing to adequately prepare for a potential shooter were among the safety lapses. Nineteen students and two teachers were killed in the May 24 massacre, which occurred while police stood by for an hour or more outside the locked classroom.

After a brief 10-minute public comment period, KSAT-TV reported, the school board went into executive session.

The fate of District Police Chief Pete Arredondo will be discussed at a second hearing on Wednesday.

All of this is happening as the families of the victims prepare to sue the government for $27 billion for violations of their civil rights. The defendants include the local and state governments, the gun store where the shooter purchased his weapon, and the manufacturer.
