CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A November trial has been scheduled for a substitute teacher accused of having sexual contact with a Cedar Rapids student.

Court records say Mary Haglin pleaded not guilty on Wednesday. She’s charged with sexual exploitation by a school employee. Authorities say she had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy who attended Washington High School. Her trial is set to begin Nov. 14.

The district says that after its investigation it barred Haglin from teaching at district schools. But the district also says that, because of a miscommunication, Haglin worked for a short time as an elementary substitute at the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

The Washington High principal and another administrator left their jobs after questions were raised about their handling of the internal investigation of Haglin.
