Lexington District One makes statement regarding RBES teacher

April 27, 2017

LEXINGTON — On Monday, April 17, 2017, a female student made allegations against 40-year-Red Bank Elementary School 5K Immersion Teacher Hianlucas Isturiz Roderiguez.

 

Based on these claims, the administrative staff notified law enforcement and filed an incident report with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.

 

Administrators acted in accordance with Board Policy and district procedure and immediately placed the teacher on leave pending an inquiry into the situation. This is standard operating procedure.

 

The Lexington County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the allegations, and we have been working closely with law enforcement officials regarding this matter.

 

It is unacceptable for any employee to hurt a child entrusted to our care, and the district takes every reasonable precaution including employee background checks to protect our students. At the beginning of each school year, students and staff are instructed in the rules and regulations of the district. Employees receive regular training throughout the year, and copies of Lexington County School District One policies are available on the district’s website at www.lexington1.net.

 

“The district takes any incident like this very seriously,” Superintendent Gregory D. Little said. “Lexington County School District One has some of the best teachers you will ever find anywhere in the world. The fact that this is an ongoing police investigation limits what we can say about it at this time. However, we are all parents, and I’d like to ask for our community to keep this family in their thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.”
