Scholar safety is paramount at John Adams Academy. We are placed in a position of trust by families, and we take that responsibility for safeguarding our scholars very seriously.
Last week, we sent a communication regarding alleged inappropriate communications by a secondary school employee at the Roseville campus that did not align with our Ten Core Values. Administration began an investigation, and due to the nature of the alleged conduct, notified the appropriate authorities immediately. That employee was placed on leave and has since resigned. We are writing to provide an update.
The Academy is not aware of any information that indicates that the matter extends beyond this particular incident and families of all involved parties have been personally contacted.
Again, we understand that the care and safety of your scholars is paramount. We thank you for your ongoing support and partnership. Any questions regarding this communication should be directed to Heather Brown (Headmaster) or Norman Gonzales (Director of Outreach).
