PALM BAY, Fla. - A Palm Bay teacher’s aide is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 14-year-old student.

 

A Palm Bay police report said Alana Chasky, 35, resigned shortly after officers began their investigation into whether she had an inappropriate relationship with an underage boy in September.

 

She worked at Riverdale Country School, which helps students with behavioral issues.

 

According to the report, she met the boy while working as a teacher’s aide on a school bus.

 

Police said the two started a sexual relationship that began in February and continued until September.

 

The report said police warned Chasky to stay away from the teenager following complaints from his mother.

 

Investigators said the boy's mother couldn’t prove there was a sexual relationship until September when she found texts between her son and Chasky.

 

Police said no sexual acts took place on the school bus or school properly, but instead, most of the interactions happened at Chasky’s home.

 

Police said they put out a warrant for her arrest and she turned herself in Monday.

 

She’s facing charges of lewd and lascivious battery and distributing obscene material to a minor.

 

Riverdale County School CEO Michele Maust released a statement about the arrest Monday, saying, in part, that "the accused has not been an employee at the site since June 30. She voluntarily resigned during the summer."
