Madonna School: reports made against Sedlacek for inappropriate behavior


    Madonna School President Jon Burt says in a news release Gregory Sedlacek had been employed by Madonna School.

    This comes after Sedlacek's arrest earlier this week.

    He's charged with two counts of first degree sexual assault involving a child.

    In court Wednesday, Sedlacek admitted to touching several girls while working at Fontenelle Elementary.

    Burt says Sedlacek was with the school from May of 2010 through June of 2011.

    In the release he says a staff member told him about an incident involving Sedlacek while he was working at Madonna.

    Madonna is a school for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

    Burt says the school has "followed several processes, including a records search as well as interviewing current and former staff members to determine if Mr. Sedlacek might have acted inappropriately during his time here."

    Burt says the investigation revealed there was a "single incident" where four female students said that Sedlacek touched them inappropriately.

    They say he touched them on their shoulders and back during a game of water tag at an organized outing to the swimming pool.

    Burt says Sedlacek was one of the staff members who went with students to the event.

    He says no other complaints have been made before or after the pool incident.

    Burt says he was "reported to have been an exemplary employee."

    This information has been shared with the Omaha Police Department as of Thursday.

    Burt encourages anyone with concerns about Sedlacek, or any misconduct at Madonna, to call him at 402-556-1883.

    To report a sexual abuse by Sedlacek, he says to call the Omaha Police Department or Child Protective Services at 800-652-1999.

    "We ask the entire Madonna Community to join us in praying for all victims of sexual abuse and supporting them in any many we are able."
