Poland Seminary High School

POLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – There is a criminal investigation against a Poland Seminary High School teacher for alleged improper conduct with a student, according to the school’s superintendent.

Superintendent David Janofa said Cassandra Kibler, an Italian teacher, has been placed on unpaid leave.

School administrators talked with the alleged victim and his parents. Janofa said the actions Miss Kibler is being accused of are unacceptable.

“It can’t be tolerated in our profession. I know a lot of people are feeling sad and upset, we all are.”

He said the board of education learned of the allegations against her on Friday.

“Swift action needed to take place. Our attention is on the child and the children of Poland Schools.”

Kibler has been with Poland Schools for seven years and never had any disciplinary issues until now. She has a record of excellent evaluations.
