HOWARD CO. – New information shows Steven Katz, a Montgomery County substitute teacher who was arrested on child sexual abuse charges last month, also worked at 70 schools in Howard County.

The 59-year-old was arrested on March 17 after a Cloverly Elementary School student told his parents that Katz touched him inappropriately.

Howard County notified parents and students two days later that Katz had worked at 43 Howard County public schools from 2012-2015 and would need more time to access if Katz worked at any other schools from 2016-2018.

Then on Wednesday, Howard County Public Schools announced Katz had worked at 70 schools total from 2012-2018.

“Communication is critical, and parents are urged to talk with their children about any contact they may have had with Mr. Katz,” said Interim Superintendent Michael J. Martirano.
