A substitute teacher gave cocaine to two 14-year-old girls she met at a private school and used the drugs with them, police said.
Kim Pike was fired from Faith Christian Academy in Longs, where she worked for about two months, principal Sylvia Kenney said.
The students told school officials that Pike invited them over to her house, where they shared some cocaine in April, Kenney said.
Pike, 31, of Little River, was charged Tuesday with two counts of distribution of cocaine and released on a $20,000 bond.
The school did not conduct a background check on Pike. Kenney said she hired Pike because she knew her family and trusted her.
Background checks also weren’t conducted on the school’s two other substitutes because they were parents of students. Now all subs will be checked, Kenney said.
Longs is about 20 miles northeast of Myrtle Beach.
