Police said the incidents occurred off campus.

“We have been fully cooperative with local law enforcement during the course of their handling of this matter,” Rocky Mount Preparatory said in a statement.

“I was really surprised,” parent Felicia Russel said. “I thought that women teachers were getting smarter and better.”

Dayvon Steel graduated from the school last year. He called it a good school with supportive, caring teachers.

“It’s very shocking and appalling that a person would do that with a student,” he said.

McAuliffe was held in the Carteret County jail under a $20,000 bond. Records show she has bonded out.

She’s scheduled to appear in Nash County District Court June 12.
