There's more fallout Tuesday over the arrest of a former teacher and how the EVSC handled the matter.

Police and school officials met this afternoon to discuss the case of 24-year-old Jordan Lee McGuire who faces charges of providing alcohol to underage teens and criminal sexual deviate conduct.

This meeting was about their policies and how incidents like the arrest should be handled.

14 News is told the meeting outlined the steps both police and EVSC Officials took during their investigation.

Police say the EVSC did not notify them of the alleged sex crime. School officials say, that's because they didn't see the act as criminal, since it took place between two people over the age of 18. McGuire is 24. The victim, who is a former Harrison High School student, is 18. EPD Officials say policies from both organizations will be reviewed and they hope to have a better line of communication between the two organizations.

"Despite our difference of opinions in this particular incident, we continue to work to provide that environment for the kids. We want to make sure that when all of this is said and done, that there are policies in place that both organizations are aware of that will prevent a lack of communication or confusion on a staff member's part or anything like that so we can make sure that this doesn't happen again," said EPD Sgt. Jason Cullum.

14 News is also hearing from some parents Tuesday night about this situation. We'll have their reaction at 10.
