A former Las Vegas Academy of the Arts theater teacher is facing some serious accusations, after a former student says they had a sexual relationship.  Now, many parents are wondering how they can protect their own children.    

13 Action News looked into some warning signs that parents can look out for.  

Social media plays a big part in these inappropriate relationships. Keep an eye on who your child is accepting as friends, and who they're messaging.  Your child should not be communicating with a teacher through social media. 

CCSD did recently roll out their social media policyto help prevent inappropriate communication. 

Also, if your child has a change in behavior, that could also be a red flag. Look out for changes such as staying later at school, or not wanting to go to school at all. These could be red flags and mean something else is going on.
