An Oakmont High School English teacher was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of possessing illegal narcotics she obtained with the assistance of a student.

Amy Lynn Davidson, 39, of Roseville, is being held in the Placer County Jail on $100,000 bail. She was also arrested on suspicion of soliciting a minor to assist in getting the drugs, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

On Oct. 2, high school officials notified the Roseville Police youth services officer assigned to the campus that Davidson was allegedly using illegally obtained prescription pills and, after investigating, the officer arrested the teacher, according to a news release issued by police spokeswoman Dee Dee Gunther.

“The teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of a thorough investigation of this matter,” said Principal Rob Hasty in a prepared statement. “At this time our focus is on supporting our students and addressing their academic needs.”

Hasty declined to answer additional questions, citing personnel confidentiality.
