Robertson High School counselor Amadee Duran, who was placed on leave last November for alleged “inappropriate” activities, is now back on the job.

Duran, who returned Monday, has been cleared by an internal investigation conducted by the Las Vegas City Schools district. She was placed on leave after allegations of “inappropriate contact” surfaced.

The Las Vegas Police Department was contacted about the allegations, and that agency launched an investigation. Deputy Police Chief Christian Montaño said this week that the police have completed their investigation and forwarded the results to the district attorney’s office.

Also in November, Robertson High School’s cheerleading coach, Krystle King, was placed on leave. She has since been terminated, Superintendent Rick Romero confirmed this week.

King is the daughter of Robertson’s principal, Eddie King, and she reads the news on radio stations KNMX, KMDZ and KBQL.

The district placed Krystle King on leave because of allegations of “inappropriate behavior,” although the district never defined what it was.

The allegations were also reported to the Police Department, but in December, the police closed the case. At the time, Police Chief Gary Gold said the allegations didn’t rise to the level of a crime.

King had been the cheerleading coach at Robertson for the last couple of school years. Before that, the Eastern New Mexico University graduate was the cheerleading coach at West Las Vegas High School.
