SALISBURY — A Southeast Middle School teacher resigned Monday morning after being jailed for a parole violation over the weekend.
Antonio Demont Bagley, 36, was arrested and placed in the Rowan County Detention Center on Friday.
Bagley, who was working as an exceptional children’s teacher, is serving 36 months probation. He was convicted of felony identity fraud/theft in Cabarrus County in 2009, according to the N.C. Department of Corrections website.
He has been employed with the Rowan-Salisbury School System since February 2002.
Rita Foil, spokeswoman for the district, said the school system does require criminal background checks.
“When Mr. Bagley was hired by our district in 2002, everything was in order,” she said in an email to the Post
Foil said the district had “no knowledge of the arrest or conviction.”
When asked about the school system’s protocol for handling criminal offenses, Foil deferred comment to Board of Education policy regarding criminal record review.
The policy states that any employee who is charged with or convicted of a crime excluding minor traffic offenses must notify the Human Resources Department immediately within five days.
