PCPS releases statement on teacher arrest


On March 30, 2020, Ponca City Public Schools was made aware of the arrest of a teacher at Ponca City
Senior High School. As always, the safety of our students and staff is a top priority.

The PCPS District works to ensure state law and board policies are followed, and if violations are found, they are quickly addressed. Allegations were reported to PCPS officials on November 21, 2019, and these allegations were immediately reported to the Ponca City Police Department. The teacher was instantaneously placed on administrative
leave and has been on administrative leave since this date. The District has fully cooperated with the law enforcement on this matter. Because this is an ongoing investigation and due to confidentiality rights, the District cannot make further comment.

This teacher has been employed by the District since August 1, 1989.
