The district says another Stanton employee, Benjamin P. Nasrallah, was reassigned from his school duties Wednesday pending an internal investigation for allegations of inappropriate conduct with a student. 

DCPS says Nasrallah was serving as the International Baccalaureate coordinator since 2017. Prior to that assignment, he served as a school counselor at Stanton beginning in August 2016.  

Duval County School Police, along with the district’s office of professional standards, continue to investigate. 

Both employees are being reassigned to roles with no student contact while the district completes its investigations. There is no word on what those specific roles are at this time.
