TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — UPDATE (3/16): McClure’s employment has since been terminated, according to Twin Falls School District spokeswoman, Eva Craner. She explained the following statements would be sent to parents this week.

School safety is a major concern for parents, especially following bouts of swatting at schools across the United States, including Canyon Ridge High School. For school officials, reporting a crime is the first step in the investigation, including this instance of alleged sexual misconduct between a teacher and student. Craner addressed the latter issue in the following statement.

ORIGINAL STORY (3/15): A Canyon Ridge High School PASS Room supervisor is in legal trouble after allegedly having a sexual relationship with a student.

Kyle McClure, 24, of Twin Falls, was arrested Tuesday evening on two counts of sexual battery of a minor child sixteen or seventeen years of age - and two counts of destruction, alteration or concealment of evidence.

According to court documents, McClure told police he knew the student was 17 and tried to hide their sexual relationship by deleting his phone messages and having her delete her texts and social media account.

McClure has been employed with the Twin Falls School District since August, according to district spokeswoman, Eva Craner.

He’s considered a classified employee and has been placed on unpaid administrative leave.

Craner told KMVT that the district is fully willing to cooperate with law enforcement’s investigation.

McClure’s preliminary hearing is set for March 24th.
