INDIANAPOLIS -- An IPS school counselor has been arrested on four preliminary charges of child seduction.

Shana Taylor was taken into custody Thursday night in Ellettsville, Indiana and transported back to Marion County to be booked into the Marion County Jail.

Prosecutors are expected to file formal charges against Taylor.

Call 6 Investigates contacted IPS spokesperson Kristin Cutler on Monday about allegations against Shana Taylor.

Taylor was hired in March 2015.

IPS released the following statement:

"Indianapolis Public Schools has zero-tolerance when it comes to inappropriate employee behaviors. Immediately upon learning of the alleged misconduct between an employee and student, administrators swiftly launched an internal investigation and instantly took steps to ensure the accused had no further contact with students. Our team is cooperating fully in the active external investigation of this situation. The safety of our students is paramount. This is not a situation we take lightly, and our administration is working diligently to take the strongest possible action to ensure our schools are safe places for students."
