MEDIA/PUBLIC RELEASE

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office has informed the district that Kelsey Boren, an instructional assistant at Veneta Elementary, has been arrested on charges related to child pornography.  No children known to Boren through her employment have been identified as victims at this point.

As a result, the Fern Ridge School District has suspended her employment with the district.  Boren will be barred from school grounds or having contact with Fern Ridge students pending the outcome of the case.

Any allegation of a crime against children must be taken seriously.  Such allegations are extremely rare, and when one occurs, we take immediate action. As a district we provide regular training to employees about recognizing and preventing sexual crimes against students.  Our staff members work diligently in teaching our students and ensuring that they are safe and secure in their school environment.

These allegations leave everyone in our district shocked and dismayed.  Counseling and support services will be available for any students or staff members who need them.  Please contact us at the district office if such support is needed.  Questions about the criminal case should be directed to the Lane County Sheriff’s Office.
