Investigators received an email tip alleging Kurowski was sexually involved with a student. They found Kurowski began dating a 17-year-old senior in October 2012.

Phone records showed she spoke to the teen on a daily basis, including exchanging explicit text messages.

Pennsylvania State Police say the couple went out of the way to hide their relationship, including meeting an area near a nursing home.

Kurowski is now suspended without pay.

“She was an employee for us for two years as a physical education teacher and cheerleading coach,”district superintendent Ed Albert told CBS Philadelphia.

Charged with institutional sexual assault and related charges, Kurowski was released on $25,000 unsecured bail.
