Hundreds of Chicago teachers and school officials sexually groomed and assaulted students last school year, according to a report released this week.
The Chicago Public Schools Office of the Inspector General released its annual report Sunday, saying it substantiated more than 300 misconduct allegations out of more than 600 complaints for the 2021-22 school year.
An OIG investigation concluded one teacher groomed and sexually assaulted a 17-year-old student three times. That teacher was charged with multiple counts of sexual assault. After a November 2022 trial, the teacher was acquitted on all counts, the report said, despite evidence provided by the student and social media records.
Another investigation revealed a former JROTC staff member had sex with a high school girl over the course of a year when she was 16 to 17 years old, the report said. The girl was also given alcohol and marijuana and purchased marijuana for him, the OIG said.

An empty classroom. A report released this week by the Chicago Public Schools Office of the Inspector General said it substantiated hundreds of adult-on-student misconduct allegations for the 2021-22 school year.
The pair also exchanged hundreds of text messages and calls.
“I’m ready to f— right now … I’m not gonna be gentle either,” one message read, the report said.
When the staff member became aware he might be under investigation, he allegedly threatened to kill the girl and her family. He was arrested and eventually sentenced to time served and four years probation after pleading guilty to sexual assault and criminal sexual abuse.
