A now former teacher at Springlake-Earth ISD was indicted on a charge of improper relationship between an educator and a student.
Tracy Barden, 47, was arrested Thursday and is being held on $25,000 bond. Lamb County Sheriff Gary Maddox said the allegation involves a high school student.
Barden taught 4th and 5th grade.
Superintendent Denver Crum said he was told of a possible investigation on Nov. 23, and placed Baden on administrative leave immediately.
Crum said Barden resigned from the district two days later.
