AURORA, Colo. — An employee at Rangeview High School has been arrested and charged with sex assault on a child after the school says he was accused of being in an inappropriate relationship with a student. 

James Kevin Dolmas, 28, is facing felony charges of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust and sexual exploitation of a child, according to Aurora police.

A letter sent home to parents from Rangeview High School's principal Friday identifies Dolmas as a "campus monitor." 

It also says he was accused of being "involved in an inappropriate relationship with a student."

"As soon as we learned about this allegation, we immediately contacted the Aurora Police Department," the letter reads. "When we learned of the charges, we promptly placed the staff member on administrative leave. Please know that we take this matter seriously and have been cooperating fully with the Aurora Police Department as they continue their investigation."

He is on paid administrative leave and is not allowed on the grounds of any APS school pending the outcome of the criminal investigation, a spokesperson for the district said.

"Placing an employee on paid administrative leave is an administrative structure that allows the legal process to run its course," said Corey Christiansen with Aurora Public Schools.

Dolmas has been employed by Aurora Public Schools since 2010, according to the letter.

Aurora police are asking anyone else who has been victimized by Dolmas to call Agent Spanos at 303-739-6153.
