KLEIN, Texas (FOX 26) - Klein ISD says a substitute teacher, Darragh Smith, who worked with the district for the last 14 months was arrested for attempted aggravated assault of a minor/online solicitation. Smith's employment with Klein ISD was terminated, and the district does not believe any Klein students were involved.
Klein ISD released a statement:
Klein ISD considers the safety of our students as our highest priority. We were just made aware that a substitute teacher, Darragh Smith, was arrested and charged with attempted aggravated assault of a minor/online solicitation. The district immediately terminated Smith’s employment. Findings currently suggest that no Klein students were involved; however, we will continue to monitor the case. Out of an abundance of caution, we also notified parents of students attending the four high schools where Smith subbed over the last year and two months.
