AUSTIN (KXAN) - A teacher at Southeast Austin's Blazier Elementary School has been arrested on a charge of sexually assaulting a former student, the school's principal said Monday in a letter to parents.
"AISD police notified campus and district officials that the teacher was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a former Blazier student," Principal Leti Pena said in the letter on school district stationery. "Once
information concerning the teacher was first reported, police acted immediately to conduct their investigation and work with campus and district officials to ensure the safety of our student.
"There is no information at this time that current Blazier students have been or are in any danger."
The teacher was not named in the letter and it was not stated when the student attended Blazier.
Pena said privacy laws limited what information she could disclose.
