Citing Moore, WDAM-TV reports Jackson resigned and surrendered to police after authorities investigated reports of an inappropriate relationship with a student. Jackson was arrested April 10 on a charge of sexual battery by a person in a position of trust or authority.
She was released on bail.
The two may be traveling in a dark blue Chevy Impala.
