The following is a statement from Arlington Public Schools Superintendent Elizabeth C. Homan, Ph.D. and Arlington Police Chief Julie Flaherty:
“The Arlington Public Schools and Arlington Police are aware of allegations brought to light against a former district student transportation driver. The allegations stem from an outside job in another community, not related to their employment with the Arlington Public Schools. The individual in question has been employed as a 7D Student Transport Driver since 2009 and had passed all standard pre-employment screening, including CORI check. The individual ceased working for the district in June.
“The district has not received any complaints or allegations regarding this individual. The district will review this individual’s employment history, and any employee or family with questions or concerns is asked to contact the superintendent’s office at 781-316-3501 or the Arlington Police Department at 781-643-1212.”
