Janesville teacher allegedly drunk on field trip


JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Police say a Janesville elementary school teacher was drunk and passed out on a field trip with students last week.

According to a police report, Maria Caya, 50, got sick during a field trip with Washington Elementary School fourth grade students at River's Edge Bowl Thursday.

Janesville Schools says Caya has been with the district 14 years.

District Superintendent Karen Schulte comment on the incident Monday afternoon. 

There is also a Janesville School Board meeting scheduled for Monday night.

The police report indicates Caya's husband took her to a hospital after the field trip, where her blood-alcohol level registered 0.27 percent, which is more than three times the legal limit. A hospital social worker is the one who called police, concerned Caya was supervising a group of children while intoxicated.

Police say Caya will face no criminal charges and their report is being forwarded to Child Protective Services and the school district.

The report states Caya admitted to drinking alcohol at 6:00 a.m. the morning of the field trip.
