Dear Las Brisas Parents/Guardians,

This notice is to update you on the allegation at Las Brisas Academy involving a staff member and a student.  As a result of the investigation conducted by the Goodyear Police Department, the teacher has been arrested and she will not return. This incident has been reported to the Arizona State Board of Education so they can make a determination regarding the teacher’s certification.   Additionally, we have school counselors and school psychologists at Las Brisas Academy today to help students and staff members cope with this incident.  The school psychologists and school counselors will also be available for the foreseeable future to continue to attend to our students’ and staff members’ needs..

Liberty Elementary School District #25 Statement
March 22, 2018

In the late evening of March 21, 2018, a parent at Las Brisas Academy reported an allegation involving a staff member and a student. We immediately reported the allegation to local law enforcement.

The investigation is in its preliminary stages and as more information becomes available, we will update you.

While employee privacy law does not allow us to comment on the employee issues, we have taken the corrective steps to separate the students and staff member and have reported the incident to the Goodyear Police Department for investigation.

The safety of our students is our #1 priority. Transparency is equally important. We are fully cooperating with the Goodyear Police Department and will comment further at the appropriate time.
