An Algebra teacher at Central High Freshman Academy in Phenix City is accused of having sex with a student. Jeannie Shiver, 37, was arrested Wednesday and charged with school employee engaging in a sex act or deviant sexual intercourse with a student under the age of 19 years, Phenix City police stated in a release. According to Central High Freshman Academy's website, Shiver is an alum of Central High School and Columbus State University. It was her ninth year teaching at Central High Freshman Academy. Her current employment status wasn't released. Phenix City police were notified by the Phenix City Board of Education on March 3 that Shiver was believed to be having an inappropriate relationship with an underage student. "It appears the school may have had information as early as February," Phenix City Police Chief Ray Smith told the Ledger-Enquirer. "There is information that the employee had been warned to stay away from the student sometime in February, but that information was not made known to law enforcement until March. We're still investigating that part of it." The school also apparently issued a warning letter to Shiver, police say. School administrators are instructed under Alabama law to report possible child abuse or inappropriate relationships between students and teachers to police immediately. "We take such allegations very seriously," Randy Wilkes, the superintendent of Phenix City schools said in a statement to the newspaper. "... This type of behavior is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the Phenix City Board of Education."
