Substitute Concordia teacher charged with sex with teen

CONCORDIA, Kan. (KSNW) - A Kansas substitute teacher has been charged with having unlawful sexual relations with a teenager.

Nicole Reed, a 42-year-old substitute teacher, was arrested outside Concordia High School.  She was charged in Cloud County District Court with one count each of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and solicitation of a child. She was released on $20,000 bond. 

Charging documents say that on or about the Fourth of July in 2015, she had unlawful sexual relations with a boy who was at least 14 but not yet 16. She also is accused of soliciting the teen previously.

This comes less than a week after Kevin Johnson, a music teacher at Concordia High School, was arrested for for engaging in consensual sexual intercourse, lewd fondling or touching, or sodomy with a student.

The Concordia Board of Education accepted Johnson's resignation during a special meeting Friday.

Despite being hired as a substitute teacher, and previously working full-time for the district, Superintendent Quentin Breese told KSNT News that Reed's arrest is not related to her time with Concordia Public Schools.

Read his full statement below:

“As previously reported, an individual was taken into custody by Concordia Police officers outside of school property on Thursday March 29, 2018. The school district has no involvement in this case other than the unfortunate circumstance that the arrest took place on the public street in front of our High School. Although the individual has been employed as a license substitute teacher, the individual was not working in the district on the date of the arrest. To our knowledge, this arrest is not related in any way to the arrest that took place on Monday. We do not want this unfortunate series of events to diminish the tremendous USD 333 community of nearly 300 staff and the 1200 students we serve each and every day. The safety and security of our students continues to remain our top priority.”
