LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WLFI) — A Logansport teacher’s contract is terminated after she was arrested in April on charges of child seduction.

At Tuesday night’s school board meeting, Logansport Community School Board members voted to terminate the contract of Kayla Skaggs, 24.

Investigators said Skaggs was in an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old male student. They said the student was not a direct student of Skaggs.

According to detectives, someone came forward with allegations of the relationship to the school system. They in turn, notified police.

Logansport Community School Corporation Superintendent Michele Starkey said Skaggs has not worked with students since she was arrested.

A trial date for Skaggs is set for the end of July.
