Parents confront MCPS leaders, after lunch aide charged with possession of child porn

Community meeting addresses arrest of teacher's aide charged with possession of child porn (ABC7)

As Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith walked out of a budget meeting early on Monday night, parents were furious.

“(You all) know what we were here for,” said one parent.

They were there to ask him about Sean Kelley.

Before his arrest, Kelley worked as a part-time lunch aide at Cloverly Elementary School.

He’s now charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.

“He is charged with three counts of distribution of imagery of a minor engaged in sexual conduct and seven counts of possession of imagery of an individual under the age of 16 engaged in sexual conduct,” said a spokesperson for Maryland State Police.

After Dr. Smith left the meeting, parents directed their questions to Chief of Staff Dr. Henry Johnson.

One person had a question about settlements in connection to child abuse cases within Montgomery County Public Schools.

“I want them to be more transparent. I want them to be more responsive,” said parent Jennifer Alvaro.

Smith says he had to leave the meeting early, due to a family matter.

We’re the told the school board was not present, due to the weather.
