CCISD Fires Teacher Accused of Relationship with Student

CORPUS CHRISTI - A King High School teacher accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student was fired today by the school board.

The teacher's name has not been made public because she's not facing criminal charges as of today.

The district's been considering for weeks how to end her employment. In june she was suspended the teacher with pay. Two days later she tried to resign, but the board refused to accept the resignation.

On June 9th they started the process of firing her. That couldn't happen right away because they had to give her time to fight their decision.

She did not appeal. So the board finalized the process before they fired her.

As far as the criminal case is concerned the District Attorney's office has asked CCISD police to investigate further before the case could be presented to a grand jury.
