The principal of an Adelaide metropolitan school has been charged by police with child sex offences.
The man, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, has been charged with aggravated indecent assault and with possessing child exploitation material.
The Education Department said the charges do not relate to students and a letter has been sent to the school community.
"We have been advised that a metropolitan school employee has been arrested and charged with child sexual offences," the department said in a statement.
"The school is being provided with appropriate support."
The letter to parents and caregivers reaffirmed that "this matter does not involve any students at our school".
The department said the letter had been sent "in accordance with Debelle protocols".
The Debelle inquiry — conducted by former Supreme Court justice Bruce Debelle — urged better reporting mechanisms, after parents in a separate case were kept in the dark.
