According to the police department, the results of the criminal investigation are being provided to the Fairfield City School District for their review.

In a statement, the district says it will also be conducting its own investigation into the allegation.

It also responds to questions about substitute teacher requirements and qualifications, saying subs are hired through a consortium with the Southwest Ohio Council of Governments.

“All SWO-COG certified substitute teachers undergo FBI and BCI background checks when applying for the position," the district continued. "They are then submitted to an FBI background screening every five years thereafter. In addition, eligible substitute teachers must also have a valid teaching credential issued by the Ohio Department of Education.”
