El Campo school board to press charges against substitute teacher
EL CAMPO, Texas — A substitute teacher at El Campo high school was immediately fired after police received an anonymous tip that the woman filmed pornographic videos in classrooms and a teacher workroom.
El Campo Police Chief Terry Stanphill stated that “the superintendent of the school contacted the El Campo police saying that they had a situation.”
When the police were first contacted a report was not filed. However, Stanphill said that, ” last night after the school board meeting the school decided to file a report and requested to press charges.”
The videos were filmed inside at least one a classroom and a teacher workroom. The teacher appeared to be alone in the videos, officials said.
Stanphill confirmed that there is no evidence that any students were exposed or involved in the lewd recordings.
The El Campo School District says the teacher had worked in the district for three months and was fired immediately last week.
However, one student said everyone is watching the videos and that the woman was a regular sub for her English classes.
El Campo Independent School District posted the following statement on their website:
