School terminates teacher in child seduction case


LOGANSPORT, Ind. (Pharos-Tribune) – The teaching contract for a woman who was arrested on a child seduction charge has been canceled.

24-year-old Kayla Skaggs was arrested on April 17 on a preliminary Class D felony charge of child seduction in a case involving a 17-year-old male student. Officials say the teen was not her student.

Skaggs was in her first year as a special needs teacher at Logansport High School, 24-Hour News 8’s news partners at the Logansport Pharos-Tribune report.

The school’s superintendent says Skaggs had not been working at the school since her arrest. The school board voted on Tuesday to cancel Skaggs’ teaching contract with Logansport Community Schools, which was the final action in her termination.

After a series of meetings, including an executive session, officials say the decision to end Skaggs’ contract was unanimous. She bonded out of jail shortly after her arrest.
