HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston high school principal and two other administrators have been charged with failing to tell authorities that students reported being sexually abused.

Some of the allegations were made against a teacher at the campus.

Authorities said Friday that Rob Gasparello, who’s principal at Sharpstown High School, has been charged with three counts of failure to report child abuse. Two assistant principals, Jason Thomson and Silvio Leiva, face one count of the same charge.

All three school officials were arrested Thursday but have since been released on bond. Court records didn’t list attorneys for them.

The Houston Independent School District says all three administrators have been removed from the school.

Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for the teacher accused of abuse.
