This District does everything possible to promote a safe and secure learning environment, and any action that goes against that will not be tolerated.
According to MiamiHurricanes.com, Tolliver was a member of the school’s track and football teams in the mid-2000s. As a parent, I am deeply disturbed any time an educator betrays the public’s trust. Schools are considered a safe haven for our children, and we parents entrust educators with the safety of our children. I am very proud of the diligent work of the Sex Crimes Unit on this case,” Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo Ramirez said in a statement.
