The Florida Department of Education is alleging that Duval Schools failed to report instances of sexual harassment by former Douglas Anderson School of the Arts music teacher Jeffrey Clayton.

Clayton was recently charged with two counts of offenses against students by authority figures, indecent lewd or lascivious touching of certain minors and unlawful use of a two-way communication device.
