Oklahoma elementary school teacher arrested on child porn charge

Local

BIXBY, Okla. (KFOR) – Authorities in Bixby say an elementary school teacher has been arrested on complaints related to child pornography.

Officials with Bixby Public Schools say the district learned that Heather Bycroft, a first-grade teacher at Bixby East Elementary, was arrested on charges related to child pornography.

At this point, the district says they do not believe any current or former Bixby students were involved in the case.

“To learn that a Bixby teacher entrusted with the safety and well-being of children may have been involved in conduct as abhorrent as what has been alleged is highly disturbing. We strongly condemn any actions on the part of an adult which endangers the mental or physical health of a child, particularly when done by someone in a position of public trust,” a statement from the district read, in part.

Bycroft has been suspended as the investigation continues.

Officials say Bycroft was in her second year of working for Bixby Public Schools.
