ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — A Ridgeview Middle School libararian assistant accused of sending sexually explicit texts to a student has been terminated and is no longer an employee with the district, Round Rock Independent School District officials said Tuesday. All officials could confirm was that David Scott “was removed from the school.”
The 39-year-old faces a charge of improper relationship between an educator and student, accused of texting inappropriate messages to a 15-year-old Ridgeview Middle School student on May 24.
According to an arrest affidavit, the student’s father told Round Rock police he discovered the text messages when he went through his daughter’s cellphone. When detectives interviewed the teen, she said Scott told her he had a dream about her and then started sending her messages about how he wanted to have sex with her, according to court documents. During an interview with police, they say Scott admitted to being sexually and emotionally attracted to the student.
What was most shocking to some Ridgeview parents is the fact they were not told about the incident. A spokeswoman for RRISD said officials did not send a letter home to parents because they do not believe there are any other victims.
District officials said Scott had been a library assistant at the school since 2012 and that he would help students with things like picking out books and using the computers. The district said Scott has never been in trouble before. He was immediately removed from the school once they learned of the accusations.
Scott was arrested on Friday and is currently out on a $50,000 bond.
