SAN ANTONIO – A Warren High School teacher and coach has been arrested after she allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with a student.
Stephanie Woods, 28, was taken into police custody.
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, a friend of the victim spoke out to a therapist, which was then reported to police.
The affidavit says Woods, a biology teacher and tennis and basketball coach, was involved with a 17-year-old girl.
The affidavit states that after the girl’s friend reported the relationship, police questioned the victim and then searched her phone.
The police report says investigators found evidence that the victim had been to Woods’ Northwest Side home. It states she told officers she had spent several nights there and had an ongoing relationship that started late last year.
In a note sent home to parents on Thursday, Warren High School officials said Woods was placed on administrative leave last Friday, after the claims were presented to the district.
“This investigation is ongoing and campus and district officials are cooperating fully with the investigating agency. We have no reason to suspect any other Warren/CCA HS students are involved,” the letter read.
Students, staff or parents can report any safety incidents to the NISD Safeline at 210-397-7233.
Woods is facing a charge of improper relationship between an educator and student.
Her bond is set at $50,000.
