According to court documents, the sexual acts happened at Thornton Middle School, at the Moore's house, at the student's house and on a dead-end road near an elementary school in the 5900 block of Plantation Forest in Katy.

Moore is charged with two counts of sexual assault of a child. Her bond is set at $30,000. She appeared before a magistrate Thursday morning after her arrest.

Cy-Fair ISD released the following statement:

"The teacher in question was removed from campus immediately when the allegations were made and is no longer an employee of the district.
