Spring Cove Paraprofessional Resigns Following Arrest by PSP


February 27, 2020

A paraprofessional formerly employed by the Spring Cove School District and assigned to Central High School as an aide, is facing felony charges of institutional sexual assault.

Casey Lee Naylor, 32, of North Woodbury Township, has resigned from her position with the Spring Cove School District. Her resignation was accepted at the Feb. 18 school board meeting. Naylor’s last day of work was Thursday, Feb. 13.

According to a Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) criminal complaint, on Feb. 14, 2020, Spring Cove School District Resource Officer Rick Brozenich contacted PSP in reference to accusations of a school employee involved in a sexual relationship with a student.

The name and information of the 18-year-old student were provided to PSP but not included in the complaint.

At approximately 10:40 a.m., Feb. 15, PSP went to the victim’s residence to attempt to interview him. The victim was not at his residence.

According to the police report, the victim’s 14-year-old sister stated that the victim had spent the night at his “girlfriend’s house.” She identified the girlfriend as Naylor.

At approximately 11:03 a.m., Feb. 15, PSP identified the victim’s vehicle parked at Naylor’s North Woodbury Township residence. The victim came out of the residence and was contacted and then interviewed by PSP.

The victim related that he spent the night at Naylor’s residence, according to the police report.

When asked if he had ever had sexual intercourse with Naylor, the victim related that he did one time approximately one week ago.

According to a prepared statement by Spring Cove School District Superintendent Dr. Betsy Baker, “The allegations do not reflect the values of the Spring Cove School District. We take such allegations very seriously. The board has accepted her resignation. We are not at liberty to comment further on this matter.”

Naylor was arraigned on Feb. 19 in front of Magisterial District Judge Andrew L. Blattenberger and released on $30,000 bail.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Thursday, March 19, in front of Judge Blattenberger.
