KUSA - The Cherry Creek School District says the math teacher accused of posting inappropriate material on Twitter is no longer employed with the district.

Officials would not confirm if Carly McKinney, 23, was let go or if she left on her own.

"The Overland High School teacher, who was placed on administrative leave after allegations of impropriety arose, is no longer employed by the District. The district will have no further comment as this is a personnel issue," Tustin Amole, director of communications with the Cherry Creek School District, said Friday.

McKinney was placed on paid administrative leave in January after inappropriate Tweets and pictures showed up on her Twitter account.

McKinney told 9Wants to Know she did not personally Tweet all the messages and added that the "Carly Crunk Bear" account was intended to be a joke.

The district says employees are trained on appropriate social media use.
