Richmond school administrator placed on leave

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A Richmond schools administrator, who was once suspended for holding an after-hours fraternity event at a school, is in trouble again. This time he's being investigated for an alleged incident involving an elementary school student. We've learned "instructional specialist in exceptional education" Daryl Roselle, is on administrative leave for the second time in as many years.

When he was placed on leave about a month ago, there was no notification to the public.

"It's kind of messed up to me," one parent said.

Sources tell NBC12 Roselle was suspended because of an incident dealing with a then-elementary school student. No one would go on the record with exactly what those allegations may be, but we're told it happened several years ago while Roselle was working at Carver Elementary.

The incident only came to light this year when the student, who is now in middle school, recognized Roselle while he was at a school for a meeting. The student connected the specialist to his time at Carver.

The child brought the information to school officials. Sources say his family had done that exact thing at the time of the original incident, but no one knows if the report ever made it to child protective services.

Now, a spokesperson confirms the investigation and says: "Per protocol, the allegations also have been shared with child protective services."

Parents with kids at Carver now say more should have been done.

"It's my daughter, you know, you send them to school and they're supposed to be getting a good education and not getting played with or messed around with or nothing like that," added Michael Sykes, whose daughter is in kindergarten.

Roselle was placed on leave and moved from his position as principal of Blackwell Elementary School last year, after sources say he held an after-hours frat party there. Back then, again, parents weren't satisfied with the repercussions.

"I think he should be terminated," said parent Carlo Black. "These are kids. These are the future."

No word yet on how long Roselle's suspension will last.
