The woman alleged with having inappropriate sexual conduct with her students is no longer an employee at Mason High School.
Mason school officials had begun the process to terminate Stacy Shuler before receiving her resignation Tuesday. The school board unanimously accepted that resignation at its board meeting Tuesday night.
The physical and health education teacher is facing 16 counts of sexual battery, involving five of her male students, and three additional counts of giving alcohol to minors.
She had been held at the Warren County jail on a $50,000 bond prior to being released on her own recognizance Tuesday.
Warren County Judge Robert Peeler ordered the 32 year-old teacher to wear an electronic monitoring device in addition to installing an 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew. She is also prohibited from having any contact with a minor excluding family.
School officials put Shuler on paid administrative leave January 18 after receiving a tip concerning a teacher allegedly having inappropriate sexual contact with students.
Some residents say school leaders should be held responsible and are asking for superintendent, Kevin Bright, to step down.
"I'm frankly appalled by the behavior of the administration and the administrators," said Mason resident, Mike Homen.
"It's disappointing that the actions of a few people have caused people to ask me to resign from my position," explained Bright. "I regret that people feel that way. We took swift and decisive action as soon as we were told of possible misconduct."
Bright says he posted the school's anonymous, 24-7 Safe Schools Lifeline over a decade ago to help prevent potential crises like this.
"With 1400 employees and 11,000 students, we're not immune to some of the terrible things that happen outside of school," explained Bright.
