Statement regarding former counselor

KIPP Texas Public Schools – Houston stands together with our families and the community to ensure the emotional and physical well-being of our students. We were informed of the guilty plea made today by former counselor Brandon McElveen, and we hope this is a step toward healing for all those harmed by the deplorable and unacceptable breaches of trust by this individual. We will continue to support law enforcement and the District Attorney’s Office throughout this matter so that justice is served. Our hearts go out to any member of the KIPP community who may have been impacted by abuse. We encourage those who have information about abuse of any kind to contact the authorities.

Daniel Caesar
Regional Superintendent, KIPP Texas Public Schools – Houston
