A Bay County teacher has been suspended without pay, after failing to show up to work since January 5th.
Deane Bozeman teacher Thomas Walker was unable to report to class because he's in jail.
District officials say he was arrested for failing to pay child support. Superintendent Bill Husfelt suspended Walker without pay until Wednesday when he made a recommendation to the school board for suspension without pay.
The board unanimously approved.
Walker was an exceptional student education teacher and taught elementary physical education.
