A track coach and teacher at an Ohio Catholic high school was arrested last week after allegedly sexually assaulting one of her students.

Corissa McCalister, 21, was driving a 15-year-old student home from a track meet on March 30 when she allegedly parked at a fairgrounds and had assaulted with him, WTRF reports. The student told his mother and she notified officials at Steubenville’s Catholic Central High School on April 21, according to a press release from the Diocese of Steubenville.

McCalister was placed on administrative leave and was arrested April 23 on two counts of sexual battery, WTRF reports.

McCalister worked as a teacher, a head cross country coach, and an assistant track coach at her school, according to the press release.

“I am deeply saddened by news of the allegations and I offer my prayers for healing for the victim and the victim’s family as well as the Catholic Central school community,” Steubenville Bishop Jeffrey Monforton said, according to the release.

According to her LinkedIn, McCalister graduated from St. Francis University in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish education, heavy.com reports. She was granted a one-year temporary teaching license in June.

Her LinkedIn has since been deleted. However, she is still listed as a Spanish teacher on the Steubenville Catholic Schools website.

Following her arrest, McCalister was held on $100,000 bond which she met and was then released. 

It’s not clear if she has an attorney who can comment on her behalf
