    Police: Teacher Charged With Sexual Assault of Student

    A teacher at a college preparatory school in Connecticut has been arrested and charged with sexual assault following allegations she had an inappropriate relationship with a student.

    The New Haven Register reports Kirvanna Jones, a math teacher at Engineering and Science University Magnet School, was charged Wednesday. She's also charged with risk of injury to a minor.

    Officials say there's no evidence to indicate that any other students or teachers are involved. Jones had been a teacher at ESUMS since August 2014.

    Superintendent of Schools Garth Harries confirmed last week that a teacher had been placed on administrative leave following the allegations and the school district had contacted police.

    Jones is being held on $75,000 bail.

    It's unclear if she's represented by an attorney.
