BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (AP) — The investigation into allegations of racial taunts by fans at a Rhode Island high school volleyball match is continuing.
Burrillville Superintendent Michael Sollitto told the town's school committee on Tuesday the district has conducted an internal investigation and is now educating students on "the importance of cultural awareness and respectful behavior" toward others.
He tells WJAR-TV the Rhode Island Interscholastic League —the governing body for high school sports in the state — will hold a closed hearing within the next few days involving superintendents, principals and coaches of both schools.
The Rhode Island Interscholastic League declined to comment.
