Uniontown Teacher Arrested for Allegation of Inappropriate Conduct Towards a Student

On Friday, February 23, the USD 235 School District Administration was made aware of an allegation of inappropriate conduct by a Uniontown Junior High staff member towards one of the school’s students outside of the school environment.

“We take these allegations very seriously as student safety and care are always our first priority,” said Superintendent Vance Eden. “We began an investigation immediately and have worked with the Bourbon County Sheriff’s Office to gain clarity. The teacher in question, Mrs. Breanne Taylor, was arrested on Sunday, February 25 and has been placed on administrative leave until the investigation is complete.”

“Please rest assured that when students return to school from the weekend, we will continue to support them and prioritize their safety,” Eden said. “We recognize that this situation will create a complex set of emotions for students and staff. We have organized additional mental health support to ensure care is accessible for those who may need it.”

“Personnel and student information is protected by law,” Eden said. “That said, we want you to feel informed and we will pass along the information that can be shared as the situation evolves.”

“Nothing matters more to our district than creating a safe and caring learning experience for every student, every day,” he said. “If you ever suspect inappropriate behavior, we ask that you bring it to our attention.”
