According to the the resolution summary, between June 2017 and May 2018, Attrill invited students to follow him on social media, where he posted pictures of himself drinking shots in bars, and sent private, inappropriate, sexualized messages to five students in Grades 7 and 8.
In February, he entered into a consent resolution agreement with the commissioner and admitted that his conduct constituted professional misconduct and is contrary to expected standards.
The commissioner determined Attrill “engaged in serious boundary violations with students of a young age” and “communicated inappropriately through private messaging with students.”
