TREYNOR, Iowa (AP) - A teacher in western Iowa faces felony charges in connection to alleged inappropriate contact with former high school students.

The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office says 44-year-old Mike Travis turned himself in to authorities Tuesday morning. He was released a short time later on pretrial supervision.

Travis faces two counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee. A message left for his attorney was not immediately returned Tuesday evening.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1o3oAOf ) Travis is a fifth-grade teacher at Treynor Elementary School and an assistant softball coach at Treynor High School. He was placed on paid administrative leave in April.

Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker says it has identified three women that may be victims of inappropriate contact from Travis. They are pressing charges on behalf of two women.
