DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Des Moines Public Schools employee has been arrested following an allegation that she had an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Des Moines police say 33-year-old Dena Marie Konrad was taken into custody Tuesday morning. She faces two felony counts of sexual exploitation by a school employee. Court records do not list an attorney.

Konrad is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a male student over the summer that included sexual conduct. Police say family members of the student contacted school officials with the allegation. District officials alerted police and an investigation was launched Friday.

Konrad is a case manager for Des Moines Public Schools who builds relationships with students and families in order to provide various services.
