We have been aware of this issue since it occured on January 21 and immediately notified police, began an investigation, and placed the teacher on administrative leave. GFW Public Schools will continue to investigate the incident and take appropriate action.
Educating students in a safe environment is the primary concern of GFW Public School District. Employees go through a screening process prior to their hire and receive job specific training to support a safe and caring learning environment.
