A central Arkansas high school art teacher is accused of having sexual contact with a student, authorities say.

On Monday, a school resource officer at Mayflower High School was informed that sexual contact between a student and a teacher in the district had taken place, according to the city's Police Department.

Jessica Kaplan, 31, was arrested on a charge of first-degree sexual assault shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday, authorities said.

Kaplan was being held at the Faulkner County jail in lieu of $10,000 bond as of Wednesday morning, according to the prosecuting attorney's office.

Mayflower School District superintendent John Gray declined to comment on the arrest. Kaplan was still listed as an art teacher on Mayflower High School's website as of Wednesday afternoon.
