Arnett was placed on leave with the district immediately following the incident and escorted off the school’s property, court records showed.

“You hear the stuff going around, but you don’t expect it to be your own school,” said Logan Clark, a senior at Franklin High School.

According to state records, Arnett was issued a teaching license to instruct social studies for grades seven to 12 in May 2017. Prior to that, she was issued a short-term substitute teaching license for general education.
