TWO RIVERS, Wis. (WBAY) - A Two Rivers High School teacher was arrested for engaging in sexual conduct with a 17-year-old student, according to the Two Rivers Police Department.

The 34-year-old suspect, Rebecca Kilps, was arrested for three counts of sexual assault of a child by a school instructional staff person.

School officials and police do not think any other students are victims.

Two Rivers Public School District Administrator Diane Johnson said Kilps was immediately placed on administrative leave once the school learned about the allegations. Johnson also said she resigned her position in the district.

“The most important work of a school district is to protect the safety and well-being of our students. When an allegation of this nature is reported, we take prompt action to protect our students. There are no circumstances in which an inappropriate relationship is acceptable and the district will not tolerate conduct that adversely affects the safety and security of our students,” Johnson wrote in a press release.

The school district is working alongside local law enforcement and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction as they look into the allegations.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Lieutenant Melissa Wiesner by calling the police department at 920-793-1191.
