    Statement from e-Stem Chief Executive Officer John Bacon (courtesy Arkansas Times):

    By now, you may be aware of the arrest yesterday of a former eStem teacher, Mr. Joshua Cameron. As the safety and security of our students is of paramount importance to us, I want to make sure our parents know the steps we take to be both proactive and reactive in situations like this.

    Before any employee is hired at eStem, we conduct a background check as well as reference checks. If there are any "red flags", an employment offer will not be granted. In this specific case, there was no indication of any issue in the federal or state background checks that were conducted.

    In spite of our best efforts, we know we can not ensure that everything will always run smoothly. For this reason, we have procedures in place to address incidents that arise. As reported in the newspaper today, Mr. Cameron was accused of inappropriate conduct by a female student on August 28th. That incident was first reported to a school counselor who subsequently informed the school director and me of the allegation. The teacher was immediately brought in for an interview and was placed on leave pending an investigation. Due to the serious nature of the allegation, a report was made by the school to the DHS Hotline which opened an investigation through the Little Rock Police Department. The school cooperated fully with the LRPD investigation while conducting an internal investigation of the allegation, as well. An additional report was made to the Professional Licensure Standards Board at the Arkansas Department of Education.

    Mr. Cameron did not return to the classroom, and on September 4th, Mr. Cameron's employment with eStem was terminated via resignation from his position with the school. As always, the safety of your children remains foremost in our minds. We will continue to review our processes and procedures to ensure that, to the best of our abilities, your children are taught by staff who possess the academic knowledge, instructional expertise, and professional judgement we all expect.

    Respectfully,

    John Bacon
