Carly Erin Kaczmarek, age 32, is charged with felony sexual activity with a student and felony indecent liberties with a student. She is being held at the Forsyth County Jail on a secured bond set at $50,000.
Indecent liberties with a student is a Class I felony that carried a 3 to 12-month sentence. Sexual activity with a student is a Class G felony with a sentence of 8 to 31 months.
Kaczmarek is the eighth teacher arrest tracked by this website since the beginning of 2020 and the first one so far for March.
Forsyth County Sheriff’s office says that more charges may be coming and the investigation is still open.
Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office at 336-727-2112m Crime Stoppers at 336-727-2800.
She was a teacher at Walkertown Middle School but the district has indicated in a statement that she had been suspended initially on an unrelated matter, but a decision was made to fire her.
WSFS statement on Kaczmarek:
On Friday, March 6, 2020, an English Language Arts teacher at Walkertown Middle School, Carly Kaczmarek, was charged with felony sex offenses involving a student. WS/FCS was notified of the investigation earlier this week into alleged inappropriate incidents that occurred off campus.
Kaczmarek had already been suspended pending investigation for a separate, unrelated matter. The teacher has since been terminated. Kaczmarek had been a WS/FCS teacher since 2014.
WS/FCS will continue to work with law enforcement through this investigation and always encourages parents and students to make us aware of any situation or relationship that concerns them.
Kaczmarek has an active North Carolina teaching license in the areas of Elementary Education (K-6), Social Studies 6-9, Social Studies: History 9-12.
To date this year, no teacher license revocations or license disciplinary actions have been posted to the State Board of Education website. I have it on good authority that there are records that should have been posted by now.
