According to a press release posted on the Charleston School District website, today, February 9, 2018, “U.S. Marshalls contacted District officials yesterday with information that Adrian Rivas, an at-will substitute teacher in the District was wanted as a Fugitive from Justice, for arrest in Texas on outstanding felony charges. District officials cooperated with the U.S. Marshall and Charleston Police Department and he was taken into custody.
Every employee in the Charleston School District, including Mr. Rivas must undergo and pass a criminal background check, including FBI fingerprinting as a condition of employment. Mr. Rivas worked intermittently as a substitute teacher from October 18, 2017 until yesterday. His arrest was not related to his employment in the District.”
