Important Information for Parents

You have likely heard that a Fox Chapel Area School District teacher from Kerr Elementary School had been arrested. The allegations are not related to any conduct involving Fox Chapel Area School District students. When district administrators were made aware of the formal charges, the teacher was immediately removed and barred from school property pending the resolution of the criminal case. The trial has been scheduled for February 2016.

Additionally, once the school district became aware of the nature of the charges, a report was filed with the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services ChildLine and with the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

At this time, we cannot discuss any additional particulars of this situation since it is a personnel matter and a criminal case is pending. Again, these charges do not involve any Fox Chapel Area School District students.
