Police: Kindergarten Teacher Busted for Drug Possession

A Jacksonville kindergarten teacher charged with drug possession has been assigned to another position with no student contact, authorities said.

Duval County public schools spokeswoman Jill Johnson said Friday that 38-year-old Gina R. Cevasco was assigned a non-teaching job at Cedar Hills Elementary pending an internal investigation. Cevasco had been with the school for three years.

Police said Cevasco was arrested after an officer came to her home Tuesday to investigate a drug complaint. Police said officers found marijuana and prescription pills in her bedroom.

Cevasco was charged with one felony and one misdemeanor drug charge. She is free on $1,500 bail.

A phone number listed for Gina R. Cevasco in Jacksonville was disconnected.
