DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (AP) - A Dell Rapids teacher accused of inappropriately texting a student has stepped down.

The School Board during a special meeting on Wednesday accepted the music teacher's resignation.

A female student recently obtained a protection order against the male teacher. Court documents allege he sent sexually explicit messages to the student via Facebook in December. The school district placed the teacher on leave earlier this month.

The teacher has not been charged with a crime. A Feb. 9 hearing was scheduled on whether the protection order will be extended.
