OROVILLE, Calif. - The Oroville Elementary School District Superintendent is speaking out about a state investigation into the schools.

Spencer Holtom told Action News Now the state is looking at chronic absentees and suspensions. 

The district announced earlier this week that it is cooperating with an investigation done by the Bureau of Children's Justice. 

Holtom said the district was working to change its policies to be more proactive even before the investigation. 

"Something happens, then we have to have a consequence and it's a reaction and we are looking at more proactive approaches," Holtom said. 

He said the district is working with the state to give them whatever information they need. 

Parents of children in the district told Action News Now that they stand by the school.
