JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - A James Island Charter High School teacher was arrested after she copied a secure test booklet, according to the State Law Enforcement Division.

Rachel Tisdale was booked into the Charleston County Detention Center on February 18. She is charged with violation of mandatory test security.

An affidavit filed by SLED claims Tisdale "knowingly and willfully violated security procedures" and made copies of a secure test. Investigators also say she then gave students access to exam questions prior to testing.

The affidavit says the alleged security violations occurred between January 2008 and June 2013.

The website for James Island Charter High School has Tisdale listed as a math teacher. Her school biography says Tisdale had been teaching at the high school in 2004.

The same biography says Tisdale graduated from James Island High School in 1999 and graduated from Clemson in 2003. It also says she has coached the school's varsity cheerleading team since 2004.
