Two months after the Carroll County Public Schools Board of Education voted to retain an independent investigator to review the school’s policies and procedures following the arrest of former teacher Kenneth Fischer, preliminary findings show CCPS is ahead of other school systems.
Fischer was first arrested in September 2017 after he communicated with an undercover agent posing as an underage minor and attempted to solicit sex.
Police then executed a search on his Westminster residence. Evidence from a seized cellphone revealed Fischer had been communicating with minors since approximately November 2014 and continuing until the time of his arrest. He pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of producing child pornography, stemming from November 2014.
