Chester superintendent accused of saying, ‘I will kill you’

CHESTER, S.C. (AP) — Chester County school employees say Superintendent Agnes Slayman has threatened to kill district employees and created a hostile work environment.

The Herald of Rock Hill ( ) reports that it has obtained an investigative report provided to the school board in which the district employees say Slayman told a staff member, “I will kill you,” and told another employee, “I will cut your throat out.” The employees say more than half of the district’s senior staff have sought medical attention for stress-related health issues and depression.

Slayman’s attorney, J. Lewis Cromer of Columbia, says Slayman has done nothing to cause employees to seek medical attention and has never “seriously threatened to kill anybody.”

Cromer says all discussions about the report have taken place in private during executive sessions of the school board
