CCSD addresses sexual misconduct concerns

Posted at 8:11 AM, Apr 03, 2017

On Monday, the Clark County School District will address what's being done to protect students after recent incidents of sexual misconduct.

One case involved substitute teacher Randall Minyard, who was accused of inappropriately touching several girls in a 5th grade class. A student told police Minyard refused to remove his hand from her chest, even after she complained.

Minyard's case is one of several involving teachers and other staff members who have been arrested over the past year for inappropriate relationships with students.

Typically, the hiring process for the school district requires licensed educators to go through a background check and have their fingerprints sent to the FBI.
