CLEBURNE (CBSDFW.COM) – Administrators with the Cleburne Independent School District have accepted the resignation of a high school teacher and girl’s soccer head coach after the man’s arrest for Improper Relationship Between Educator and Student.

Christopher William Francis, of Flower Mound, was a teacher and coach at Cleburne High. Francis’ resignation was effective May 14. According to Superintendent Dr. Tim Miller, “Mr. Francis did not state the reason for his resignation. Because this is personnel related, the district cannot provide additional information or comments relating to this resignation.”

District leaders said Francis taught audio visual and animation classes in the career/technical education program.

Officials with the Cleburne Police Department say they were notified about a possible improper relationship between Francis and a female teen. On Tuesday, the same day he resigned, Francis was arrested on the 2nd Degree Felony charge.

Cleburne School District officials say they are working with Cleburne police in its investigation of the allegations.

Francis, 27, began teaching and coaching in the Cleburne ISD last year, before that he was a coach in the Irving, Lewisville ISDs.

Francis is being held in the Johnson County Jail on a $40,000 bond.
