ALVIN, Texas - An Alvin Independent School District employee is accused of having an improper relationship with a high school student.

Alejandro Martinez was a staff member who worked for the Alvin ISD Maintenance Department. District officials said they received a tip that Martinez was engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a 12th grade female student.

Alvin ISD launched an investigation, which then led to an indictment.

Martinez resigned at the beginning of the investigation.

"Anytime an employee of Alvin ISD violates the trust placed in them by our community, regardless of whether the interaction occurred at our schools or elsewhere, we will assist law enforcement in prosecuting to the full extent of the law. We hold our employees that work in our auxiliary departments to the same standards we set for teachers and administrators and expect their actions to reflect that they are entrusted with supporting the education of our students," Alvin ISD Superintendent Buck Gilcrease said.
