Salado Teacher Accused Of An Inappropriate Relationship With Student Resigns

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) --- A first year Salado High School mathematics teacher, and football coach has resigned in light of accusations of having an inappropriate relationship with a student Thursday.

Marcos Garcia, resigned after a parent of a sixteen-year-old girl reported inappropriate relations between the teacher and their child.

Salado Superintendent Michael Novotny became aware of the alleged situation Thursday morning when he was informed of the parent's report. The student was called in for a conference, after which Novotny called in the principals, Salado Police, and Garcia.

Parents received a letter informing them about the allegations against Garcia.

In the letter Novotny wrote, "We are reviewing our existing processes and procedures for reinforcing our staff's knowledge about policies, laws, and ethics," he said. 

"We will be putting together a professional learning activity in the near future to remind staff members about their obligations in this area, including the use  (or misuse) of social media, text messages, Facebook, Twitter and other resources."

The criminal investigation with Salado Police Department is ongoing.
