She had worked at the school for three years without any similar incidents.
Texas state law does not require charter schools to undergo the same rigor of standards that public schools are accounted to uphold. Instead, the state-wide requirement for charter schools came in a 2007 law that required a criminal background check and fingerprints from teacher applicants.
