JEFFERSON TWP., Pa. -

A Tulpehocken Area High School teacher accused of having sex with a student has resigned.   

Nicole Kurowski's resignation took effect Jan. 7, district officials said Thursday.

Kurowski was arrested in November for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a student.

Kurowski, a physical education teacher and cheerleading coach at Tulpehocken, had been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the criminal case.

Authorities said Kurowski engaged in a physical and sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male student during the past school year.
