State suspends certification of teacher arrested for drug, embezzlement complaints
OKLAHOMA CITY (KTUL) —
The State Board of Education has passed an emergency order to suspend the certification of a Sapulpa teacher arrested on drug and embezzlement complaints.
The Emergency Suspension Request was passed Thursday for the certification of 27-year-old Megan Sloan, a teacher at Holmes Park Elementary who was arrested May 1. Police say she brought drugs and drug paraphernalia to the school and admitted to using "field trip money" to buy gas and drugs for herself.
Sloan reportedly left her Facebook account open on a co-worker's computer, which reportedly showed a conversation in which she talked about using and selling heroin and pawning school property. When she was arrested, police found multiple syringes, heroin and methamphetamine in her purse, according to documents.
Sloan faces four drug-related counts and one count of embezzlement.
