UPDATE: YISD teacher cleared following investigation


UPDATE: KTSM 9 News would like to clarify this story. 

Per standard procedure, the teacher was placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation. 

YISD tells KTSM that authorities were contacted. The district’s investigation is complete and the teacher has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

One mother claims that her 6-year-old son was the target of physical and mental abuse at the hands of his kindergarten teacher at Ysleta ISD’s Sageland Elementary School.

The mother says the alleged bullying began in September 2018 and continued until this past February when she finally withdrew him from the Lower Valley campus and enrolled him in another.

In a statement to KTSM, the district said the teacher was”on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.”

Alvarado says she hopes her son’s story will help other parents in similar situations speak out.

“I hope parents do speak up and come forward so justice can be done for my son and for other kids,” she said.
