Superintendent weighs in on former Miamisburg teacher accused of inappropriate relationship with student

A former Miamisburg Middle School teacher was indicted Tuesday on multiple charges for an alleged “sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student,” according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.

Jessica Langford, 32, of Centerville, is being charged with three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

During the last week of last school year, Langford “engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with a 14-year-old male student at the school,” prosecutors said. 

“We became aware of a possible incident of misconduct during the last couple of days of the 2016-2017 school year. We immediately put her on paid administrative leave so we could investigate,” said Miamisburg Superintendent David Vail. “We were just informed today of the findings from the grand jury against this former employee. We will continue to work with the local authorities and the prosecutor with this case.”

Langford was hired in the Miamisburg district in 2006, records show.

Miamisburg City Schools records requested by this news outlet in the spring show the woman had a solid tenure in the district.

She was hired as a student-teacher in the fall of 2006 and was brought on full time in August 2008, serving nearly nine years at three schools while receiving good evaluations, records show.

“Her lesson plans are detailed and contain measurable objectives, teaching strategies and an evaluation plan for each day,” according to a 2012 review. “Professional reflection on the lessons observed was completed.”

One document indicates she “has high academic expectations for her students” and “the teacher makes the content comprehensible by making connection to past learning.”

Langford resigned from Miamisburg schools in late May amid sexual misconduct allegations, district records show. She was put on paid administrative leave the day Vail said the accusation came to light, district records show.

A report alleging sexual battery was filed that week with Miami Twp. police, records show.

The paid administrative leave letter indicates Langford would not be permitted “on any district property” during the school district’s investigation.

Her one-sentence resignation letter states the decision was for “personal and professional” reasons.

Langford is due in court on Nov. 28 for her arraignment.
