MANSFIELD (1080 KRLD) - The Mansfield ISD is now explaining why it suspended a popular elementary school teacher back in September.

In a recent statement the school district said Stacy Bailey, an art teacher at Charlotte Anderson Elementary, was suspended after parents complained about her discussing her sexual orientation with students.

The district claims leaders met with Bailey several times to discuss the complaints but that Bailey refused to follow district guidelines about appropriate conversations with students.

Bailey's attorney tells the Dallas Morning News Bailey she only spoke with her students about her family, which includes her wife.

A number of students and parents have asked the district to re-instate her.
