SANFORD — A Seminole County teacher accused of having sex with two female students has been fired.
The School Board voted Tuesday to dismiss Scott Kimbrough, a math teacher at Lyman High. The school district also has forwarded a complaint to the state Department of Education, which could strip Kimbrough of his teaching certificate, school district spokesman John Reichert said.
Kimbrough, 39, was arrested early last month on child-sex-abuse charges involving a 17-year-old female student. A few days later he was rearrested after a second female student told police she and Kimbrough had sex twice at his house near Winter Park in 2011 when she was 15.
Kimbrough, who was with Seminole County public schools for 13 years, taught analysis and algebra classes along with sponsoring the Mu Alpha Theta mathematics honors society and the anime club, which focused on Japanese movie and television animation.
The first girl told authorities that she and Kimbrough had sex at his home at least three times in recent months. An investigation was initiated after teachers and students told Longwood police they suspected an inappropriate relationship between the teacher and student.
Kimbrough did not contest the dismissal recommended by Superintendent Walt Griffin. He is out of jail on $30,000 bail, required to wear a GPS-monitoring device and forbidden to have contact with the alleged victims. He is scheduled for arraignment June 18.
