GPISD Teacher Arrested For Potential Inappropriate Relationship

Matthew Ramos, a former teacher at the Young Women’s Leadership Academy at Arnold, was arrested Friday, November 5, for potential inappropriate relationship. Central administration received information indicating potential impropriety on Friday, October 22, 2021. Law enforcement was notified that same afternoon and opened an investigation, resulting in the arrest.

Mr. Ramos, who has not been on campus since October 22, has since resigned from the District and his situation has been reported to the State Board of Educator Certification as required.

“I want parents to know that we do not tolerate any form of inappropriate communication or contact between a teacher and a student,” said Grand Prairie ISD Superintendent Linda Ellis. “We will always act swiftly to make sure concerns are properly investigated and action is taken to ensure our students’ safety.”
