Salado, Tx — A former Salado Junior High teacher and coach was arrested and charged with an improper relationship between an educator and a student on Wednesday.
Marcos Rene Garcia was booked on a $35,000 bond.
Last Thursday, February 13, Garcia resigned after a 16-year-old girl's parents reported the relations. Salado ISD Superintendent Michael Novotny contacted authorities and CPS when he learned of the allegations. Novotny also wrote parents that the district will be reviewing policies, laws, and ethics among the staff.
The investigation is ongoing.
