District 204 Statement on Former Teacher’s Arrest

Reported by on 4/9/22

The Aurora Police Department has informed us that former Metea Valley High School music teacher Nathan Bramstedt was arrested and charged with multiple felonies related to a former student. School officials learned over a year ago that the police were investigating Bramstedt. Upon learning of the investigation, District 204 immediately removed Bramstedt from all of his duties and placed him on administrative leave. While on leave, Bramstedt tendered his resignation, which was accepted by the district. Investigators have not given the district any indication that Bramstedt had involvement with any current students.

Bramstedt started teaching in District 204 in 2004 after successfully completing a criminal background check.

We will be providing support at school for any student who may need to discuss this issue. The district has cooperated fully with the police to support their investigation. We appreciate the collaboration of the DuPage County Child Advocacy Center, the Aurora Police Department, and the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office on this matter.
