A teacher at McMillen High School in Murphy and assistant baseball coach at Plano East Senior High was arrested Tuesday, Jan. 5 on suspicion of having an improper relationship with a female student that included sexual contact and lavishing her with cash and gifts.
Aaron Russell Reza, 30, of Wylie was charged with having an improper relationship between an educator and a student and sexual assault of a child. He was booked into the Collin County Detention Center on the two second-degree felonies and released on $20,000 bond the same day.
Plano ISD officials sent out a letter to parents Wednesday stating that Reza was immediately placed on administrative leave and that the district is cooperating with investigators.
“We want parents to know that McMillen High School and Plano ISD administrators are working in full cooperation with local authorities, and the teacher has been immediately placed on administrative leave,” McMillen Principal Dr. Brian Lyons said. “Our school and district are committed to continuing to provide an outstanding education to all of our students and will minimize any impact this situation and the resulting transition may have on them.”
