Officials from the charter school that serves middle- and high-school aged students provided a statement to KRON after Gower’s arrest.

“We immediately shared that information with authorities who are reviewing the matter. That teacher is no longer employed by Making Waves Academy and we have reached out to parents, students and faculty to provide support where it might be needed,” officials said.
