Alex Robinson, a former Wichita police sergeant facing child sex charges in two states, is no longer employed by the Wichita school district, a district official said Tuesday.

Robinson, who had been on paid leave since January 2013 from his position as a school safety supervisor, is “no longer an employee” of the district, spokeswoman Susan Arensman said in an e-mail.

She said the decision was made Friday.

Asked whether Robinson resigned or was fired, Arensman said, “We can’t share that information because it is a personnel matter. He is no longer an employee as of April 4.”

Robinson, 51, has been charged with multiple child sex crimes in Sedgwick County and in El Paso County, Colo. As a supervisor for Wichita public schools, he had been paid $75,790 a year.

Normally, a school district employee arrested on suspicion of a felony offense is suspended with pay pending adjudication or resolution of the case. But the district policy on employees who have been arrested says, “In certain circumstances, other employment action may be taken.”
