Principal tells parents volunteer is sex offender

FAIRBURN, Ga. (AP) - School officials south of Atlanta told parents that 1 of the parent volunteers is on the Georgia sex offender list.

Bear Creek Middle School Principal Darron Franklin told parents at the Fairburn school that the school system will review the volunteer approval process to make sure it doesn't happen again.

WSB-TV reports that students at Bear Creek Middle School and Creekside High School say the volunteer handed out pizza at football games. Fulton County sheriff's officials say the man also went on field trips and was around children multiple times.

A school system official told WSB the volunteer passed a background check because he used a different name on his application, and it didn't match the sex registry. School officials say he has been banned from school property.
