This afternoon, the Portland Police Department announced a case involving a Sherwood School District staff member. Brian Trostel was hired by the District as a teacher at Sherwood High School in August 1995, and was placed on administrative leave December 18, 2020 when we gained knowledge of the Portland Police Department’s investigation. As always, our district complies with all law enforcement investigations, and does not comment on allegations in pending investigations. At this time we have no reason to believe students within our district have involvement in any current investigation related to Mr. Trostel. Further questions or information regarding this matter should be directed to the Portland Police Department.
