BELTON (January 31, 2013)—A former Salado school teacher was indicted Wednesday by a Bell County Grand Jury on a two count charge that she had an improper sexual relationship with a student.

Lisa Marie Wagnon, 48, was arrested after she turned herself in to Travis County sheriff’s deputies in Austin on October 25 when a warrant was issued for her arrest on the charge.

Wagnon was named in the warrant after a 15-year-old student told Salado Independent School District administrators that he was having a sexual relationship with a teacher.

The Bell County Sheriff's Office started an investigation after the student reported the relationship on October 22, 2012.

Salado School Superintendent Dr. Michael Novotny said Wagnon resigned the next day after working for the district for 12 years.

He said she taught at Salado Intermediate School, although the district's Website lists her as a dyslexia specialist at Thomas Arnold Elementary School.

He said after learning of the allegation he immediately called the sheriff's office and Child Protective Services.

"Another student had actually reported it first then that's when we brought in the student that allegedly was involved," Novotny said.

He said he's not aware of any additional allegations.

"We are doing everything we can to cooperate with the authorities and to keep our students safe, however if they have any additional information they are certainly welcome to contact me and share it with me," he said.
