FORTVILLE, Ind. (WISH) – The Fortville Police Department say the Mt. Vernon school employee charged with child seduction was taken into custody.

Police said Kisha Nuckols, 38, was being held in the Hancock County jail without bond Friday afternoon.

She is charged with two counts of child seduction, level 5 felony, child seduction, level 6 felony, dissemination of matter harmful to minors, and level 6 felony. Nuckols is accused of having sexual relationships with half a dozen current or former students. She was a non-certified teacher’s aide, lifeguard and substitute teacher for the corporation.

My primary concern as we move forward is how can we learn from this and improve our protocols as a school district. While I would like to think this will never happen in our school(s) again, however, this type of occurrence appears to be more frequent in our society. Please be assured that if we ever face this type of situation in the future, we will proceed by following these immediate action steps: 1) We will notify law enforcement and child protective services so they can determine if criminal or child abuse charges need to be pursued, 2) We will investigate the situation and determine if our staff acted properly in supervising the students and addressing the identified behaviors, 3) We will discipline staff and students following the required due process, involving the necessary parents in the process.
