A Clements High School employee resigned last month amidst an investigation into an alleged inappropriate relationship with a student, according to Fort Bend ISD.
A letter to parents from Clements Principal David Yaffie, dated March 20 and released to the Fort Bend Star by the school district, says, “The staff member in question has not been present at Clements since the allegation was brought to my attention (March 19). That staff member has resigned from Fort Bend ISD.”
School district spokesperson Amanda Bubela, in response to a series of questions, said in an email Friday she could not confirm the identity of the former employee or provide additional details beyond the principal’s letter. Bubela said an investigation by the Fort Bend ISD Police Department is ongoing and there has not been an arrest or any charges filed.
“The safety and well-being of Clements students are always my first and foremost priorities,” Yaffie wrote in his letter. “The Clements administration and Fort Bend ISD take allegations such as this very seriously. I will always take immediate action when reports of this nature are brought to my attention and these investigations will be handled in the most serious manner possible.
“I know that you trust the Clements staff with your most valuable possessions – your children. I, along with the district, will not tolerate behavior that compromises the emotional or physical safety of Clements students.”
