SANTA FE — A Santa Fe High School teacher has been charged with three felonies following allegations that she sexually assaulted a teenage student.
Jaimie Dominy Page, 25, was arrested Thursday and charged with sexual abuse of a child; having an improper relationship between an educator and a student; and online solicitation of a minor.
Page was booked into the Galveston County Jail on bonds totaling $50,000, authorities said. She posted bond and was released Thursday afternoon, authorities said.
Adam Poole, an assistant district attorney with the Galveston County district attorney’s office, said all three charges relate to Page’s relationship with a male student.
Authorities allege Page sent an explicit photograph to the student, who is not being identified because of his age, and had a sexual relationship with him.
Poole said there was an investigation into whether other students had been involved. He said the investigation began after Page was put on administrative leave by the school district in February.
According to jail records, Page was arrested at 2:10 p.m. during a traffic stop on FM 646 near Interstate 45.
Page was placed on administrative leave by the Santa Fe Independent School District on Feb. 20 after the school began an investigation into the abuse allegations. According to a statement released by district Wednesday night, Page resigned from the district during the course of an investigation into the allegations.
“SFISD believes these are serious charges and believes that such conduct, if it occurred, is unacceptable and despicable,” said district spokeswoman Patti Hanssard in the statement.
According to a class website linked to on the school district’s website, Page was an art teacher and began teaching at the school in the fall of 2012. The website was taken down shortly after the Daily News asked the district to confirm it belonged to Page.
Page graduated from the University of Houston Clear Lake with a bachelor of fine arts degree and teaching certificate in May 2009. According to the website, she graduated from Dickinson High School in 2004.
According to the website, she was an art teacher and cheerleading instructor at Angleton Junior High from August 2009 to May 2012.
According to the website, Page is married and has a 5-year-old son.
