LOUISBURG, Kan. – A Louisburg High School Teacher is facing charges of domestic battery. District Superintendent Brian Biermann told FOX 4 Kyle Littrell is allowed to continue teaching and coaching football at the high school, despite the charge.

“Charges are one thing but a conviction is another,” Biermann said over the phone.

Biermann said the district strongly believes no students or staff is in danger. He said the incident did not happen on school property or involve any students. Biermann said the district will continue to let Littrell coach while the allegations play out in court.

“It’s kind of disappointing because I always kind of looked up to him” said Jordon Leach, a student at the high school.

Court documents show Littrell was arrested at a Louisburg home in July and said he had physical contact with a family member.

Biermann would not tell FOX 4 if the teacher is facing any punishment from the school district and said the school has to be careful about any wrongful termination. He said Littrell has been a coach at the school for at least five years.

Littrell is due in court on Thursday.
