CHICAGO — A former Chicago Public Schools teacher accused of sexual assault was scheduled to be in bond court Tuesday.
Sara Damyan, 33, was arrested in the 2400 block of W. Belmont Ave. Monday morning and faces one felony count of criminal sexual assault.
Damyan is accused of assaulting the 13-year-old boy between Jan. 15, 2019 and March 8, 2019.
Damyan was listed as a special education teacher at Alessandro Volta Elementary School until Sept. 30, 2019, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.
“She has not been employed at the district since September 2019 and prior to that she was removed from the classroom in March 2019,” CPS said in a statement to WGN.
“The safety of our students is the district’s top priority and the district immediately removed the former employee from her position in March 2019 in response to serious allegations,” said James Gherardi of CPS. “The district will provide supports to the school community and we will continue to fully support law enforcement and the State’s Attorney’s Office during the criminal proceedings.”
