A former Vina schoolteacher who admitted to having sexual contact with a student is no longer with the school system.

Franklin County Board of Education Vice Chairman Ralton Baker confirmed Thursday night that Sonny Tibbs tendered his resignation at the board meeting. Tibbs had been on paid suspension.

A preliminary hearing for Tibbs is scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday.
