According to a Pulaski County Sheriff's Office (PCSO) information report filed on Wednesday, a PCSSD spokesperson was contacted by the parents of a student who reportedly had several inappropriate images sent to them by the teacher in question.
A report was filed with the Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division (CACD), and a meeting was scheduled with district personnel, the student's parents, a PCSO investigator and a representative from the CACD.
No charges have been filed, and no arrests have been made.
The Pulaski County Special School District released the following statement Thursday afternoon:
Administrators at Robinson High School became aware of allegations of inappropriate behavior involving a Robinson High School teacher and a student. The district contacted the Arkansas Police State Hotline and the Pulaski County Sherriff's Office. Yesterday the teacher was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of investigation. This action was taken to protect both the student and the staff member until the situation is fully resolved.
On behalf of the hundreds of hard working and dedicated employees in our school district, please know this allegation has our full attention, and we are working swiftly to ensure it is handled appropriately and not allowed to cast a shadow on our professionalism.
Because this is a personnel issue, the district is limited, legally, in what we can release regarding the name and other details about the teacher involved. Also, the student is a minor, which prohibits us legally and ethically from releasing a name or other any details that may be identifying.
