BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) (News App readers click here for full report) — A Palm Beach County School District teacher, arrested by the Boca Raton Police Department, is expected to be fired during Wednesday’s school board meeting.
Jason Wasloff was arrested in September of 2020 for “Kidnap – False Imprisonment (of an adult)” and “battery — touch or strike.” He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and released the following day. Those charges, allegedly related to a domestic dispute still playing out in court, came shortly after the school district launched an investigation into “inappropriate interaction with a student.” The two allegations appear to be unrelated.
From the termination letter obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, and signed by Palm Beach County School Superintendent Dr. Donald Fennoy:
“On or about July 7, 2020, you became the subject of an Employee and Labor Relations investigation based upon allegation of policy violations related to inappropriate interaction with a Student, Ethical Misconduct, Failure to Exercise Best Professional Judgement, Giving False Information During an Investigation and Failure to Follow Policy, Rule or Directive. At the conclusion of the investigation, the allegations were substantiated.”
“I will recommend the termination of your employment become effective on Friday, March 26, 2021.”
Wasloff, of Lake Worth, was assigned to Forest Park Elementary School. The specific nature of the alleged inappropriate interaction with a student was not immediately clear. His license, according to the State of Florida’s Department of Education, is for “elementary education” and “reading.” It became effective in July of 2017 and expires in 2022.
