CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Faust Junior High School teacher accused of misconduct with a student was dismissed Tuesday evening following a dismissal hearing during a special meeting of the Chambersburg School Board.
Tab Kurtz, 45, of 404 Landis Road, Hagerstown, did not attend the hearing, which was held behind closed doors during a special meeting of the board, according to board members. His dismissal came a day after the most serious charges against him - aggravated indecent assault and criminal attempt to commit aggravated indecent assault - were dismissed.
Kurtz waived his preliminary hearing before District Justice Gary Carter Monday. Although Franklin County Assistant District Attorney David Rahauser agreed to dismiss the felony charges, Kurtz is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 3 for mandatory arraignment on misdemeanor charges of indecent assault and corruption of a minor.
