Beik’s employment with the school district was terminated on April 9, 2018. Beik was a full-time nurse at Linn-Mar High School since August 2016.

Student safety is our first and foremost concern. The district takes all allegations related to abuse or harassment very seriously."

Court Documents say police have charged a Linn-Mar High School nurse with Sexual Exploitation by a School Employee after she allegedly had sex with a student. 

Angela Beik was put on paid administrative leave last week while police investigated her. 

Beik is also employed at St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids. 

According to court documents Marion Police began their investigation last month after learning the Department of Human Services was investigating Beik, after learning she allegedly had consensual sex with a student at Linn-Mar High School. 

The 16-year-old involved has denied the accusations according to court documents. 

Police searched the teen's phone and found that his call history and texts had been deleted leading them to believe he "deleted the contents to hide the suspect activity" according to documents. 

Police seized the teens phone as well as Beiks. 

Documents say Beik told two nurses employed by St. Luke's Hospital that she had sex with a high school student. 

Beik allegedly described the actions in detail even describing how long the sex lasted. 

In addition she also allegedly told her coworkers the student sent her a sexual video on her phone. 

The nurses reported Beik which prompted the entire investigation.
