22-year-old female Wall Township High School English teacher was arrested on a charge of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male student.
Kalee Warnick of the Deer Run section of the township was arrested Tuesday on charges of third-degree aggravated criminal sexual contact and second-degree having a sexual relationship with a minor she had care over, according to the complaint out of Wall.
The Wall Township Board of Education will review Warnick's contract renewal, according to board President Eva Applegate, who said she is aware of the criminal charges against Warnick but could not comment on them.
"The board will be discussing the employee's contract renewal in a closed session next week," Applegate said.
The incident was reported to police July 14, the complaint stated. According to Board of Education agenda documents Warnick had worked as a home instructor for the district in June.
Charles Webster, spokesman for the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office, said the office could not release any information as to how police were made aware of the alleged sexual contact.
"It's an ongoing investigation. The complaint will have to speak for itself," Webster said.
Repeated calls and a visit to the school district resulted in no comments.
Warnick was released after posting $50,000
