A former contract worker at a Northeast D.C. school is facing charges of second-degree child sexual abuse.
Jestin Hickman, 21, of Southeast D.C. is accused of having sexual contact with a 13-year-old student at Capitol Hill Montessori at Logan, located in the 200 block of G Street Northeast.
Hickman had been an employee of Springboard Education in America, a company contracted by D.C. Public Schools to handle before- and after-school programs. A note reportedly sent this week by principal Kim Adutwum to Capitol Hill parents said the district had temporarily suspended the company’s services while they investigate.
According to its website, the Massachusetts-based company has been operating in 21 DCPS schools.
WTOP has reached out to Springboard for comment.
