Athletic Director At Roman Catholic High School On Administrative Leave
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The athletic director at Roman Catholic High School in Center City is on administrative leave.
Late last week, administration at Roman Catholic High School received an allegation that its athletic director, Sean Fitzherbert, had allegedly engaged in inappropriate conduct via computer technology with a minor attending Father Judge High School, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced Monday.
Fitzherbert is currently on administrative leave, meaning that he is relieved of all duties within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
Prior to beginning employment at Roman Catholic High School in July 2013, Fitzherbert’s criminal record checks and child abuse clearances were obtained. He also participated in the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Training Program, according to a spokesperson for the Archdiocese.
Fitzherbert was not previously employed with the Archdiocese.
The spokesperson says information regarding this situation was communicated to the Roman Catholic and Father Judge High School communities Monday afternoon.
The Archdiocese says this information was shared with the Philadelphia Police Department, Special Victims Unit, which is handling the ongoing investigation.
No charges have been filed.
