Officials with Duval County Public Schools are aware of a Facebook post directed at Superintendent Nikolai Vitti that could be interpreted as a threat against his life, said spokeswoman Marsha Oliver.
She said the post was brought to the school system’s attention Thursday afternoon and then relayed to the Duval Schools Police Department.
The police are investigating the post and will determine if it is serious and what needs to be done with the situation, Oliver said.
“I can confirm for you that information has been shared with our school police department,” Oliver said in an email. “We are confident that they will conduct a thorough review to determine credibility and resolution. In the meantime, we are continuing our work in serving the educational needs of Duval County students.”
It is unclear if the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office will be needed in the investigation, Oliver said.
