Hickman said NPS takes every complaint seriously, fully investigates each one and responds appropriately and within the bounds of law.
“NPS disagrees with the allegations made against it in the 2007 lawsuits and the one filed last week. Filed by the same attorney, the new lawsuit contains virtually no detail regarding allegations,” Hickman said.
Hickman also added that, like other lawsuits, it was filed years after the student was in the Shave/Flores classroom.
“While we are limited by law in what we can share regarding investigations we conducted and contrary to any assertions being made, NPS had no information that would cause a reasonable person to conclude abuse was occurring,” she said.
Flores was a teacher’s aide for NPS from 2001 until 2011, when he resigned.
