Haskell provides no new details on violations

Representatives from Haskell Indian Nations University have provided no new information about academic violations within the school’s athletics department.

The Journal-World was scheduled to meet with Haskell President Chris Redman this week, but that meeting was rescheduled for next week.

The academic violations came to light after an anonymous letter to the Journal-World, which prompted Haskell officials to issue a news release that provided vague information about a federal investigation into falsified student-athlete ACT scores at the school.

The release stated that employees were “disciplined for manipulation of three other student transcripts.”

The release did not mention which sports were involved.

Requests for a more detailed description of the violations have not been answered, despite multiple requests.

The Journal-World also filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the U.S. Department of the Interior for the full report of the investigation. That request is pending and could take several weeks.
