A second teacher from the same school in Cabarrus County has been arrested this week, this time on methamphetamine charges.
Jason Aaron Schultz, age 43, was arrested on Feb. 22 and charged with felony possession of methamphetamine.
The bond amount is unknown at this time, however, records show Schultz is no longer in the custody of the Cabarrus Sherriffs’ Office.
Schultz does have an active teaching license on file with the state:

Parents were contacted by the Carolina International School on Feb. 22 notifying them that Schultz has been suspended immediately and banned from campus.
The school also said it is investigating.
The head of the school, Dr. Paul Bryant, issued a statement to parents which reads in part:
We became aware of an unfortunate situation involving two of our teachers.
We are educators and as educators, we are held to the very highest ethical and moral standard, and when we choose to go off of that, it does cause a ripple effect, whether it’s on campus or off it causes a ripple effect.
People depend on us, they are here because of us so we have to act quickly, we have to act firmly and we have to make certain that no one comes into this arena as our school to harm our children in any way, form, or fashion, so we had to act very very quickly and we always will. We wanted to make certain that our children stay safe and I believe that the steps we have taken will ensure that our children stay safe.
The notification to parents also mentioned one of their elementary school teachers, Jeremy Flock, who was arrested on Feb. 21 and charged with one count of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and one count soliciting a child by a computer.
According to the Cabarrus County Sheriffs’ Office, Schultz is the subject of an ongoing investigation. Citizens with additional information can contact the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office at 704-920-3000 or via CrimeStoppers at 704-93CRIME.
