WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The West Des Moines school district says it won’t rehire a substitute teacher who showed third-graders a personal video that included brief scenes of nude adults.

The incident occurred Tuesday at Crossroads Elementary School, and a district spokeswoman says the teacher was immediately removed from the classroom.

The video included a scene about alcohol and one showing the backsides of nude adults playing with flying discs.

Spokeswoman Elaine Watkins-Miller says parents were immediately notified, guidance counselors were made available and state authorities were notified.

District officials won’t name the teacher because it’s a personnel matter.
