On August 30, the Allen ISD released a statement regarding a serious matter that administrators learned about. They wanted to ensure that the public was immediately aware of it.
On Tuesday, the district was informed by a third party that a teacher that worked at Curtis Middle School has been indicted by a grand jury. Prior to this information, the school district said that they didn’t know about the proceedings. In any case, they have taken the teacher out of the classroom, and that person is now on administrative leave.
The district has stated they don’t know exactly what was provided to the grand jury. They do know that allegations of misconduct were made against the teacher in April 2022.
Upon learning of the information, the Allen Police Department School Resource Office and the district have worked with law enforcement officials as the investigation continues. In this process, the district has interviewed the student, the student’s parents, witnesses, and the teacher that was mentioned.
After reviewing the evidence, Allen ISD could not sustain the claims. On the other hand, they did notify Child Protective Services of the incident for precautionary measures.
Subsequent to the district’s investigation, the Collin County Children’s Advocacy Center and more law enforcement officers have conducted forensic interviews and increased discovery procedures to get more details.
The results of the grand jury findings aren’t public and had just been available on Tuesday.
