WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- An elementary school teacher charged with carrying a concealed handgun on school premises doesn't work for the district anymore, a Wichita school district spokeswoman said.

Spokeswoman Susan Arensman told The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1bbODL1 ) in a text message Thursday that 31-year-old Daniel C. Nagel "is no longer an employee" of the district. Arensman would not say if Nagel was fired or when his employment ended.

Nagel, who is due in Municipal Court on Monday for a first appearance, was arrested May 20 at an elementary school on suspicion of carrying a concealed gun on school property. Nagel had been on paid administrative leave after his arrest.

Nagel's lawyer, Nicholas Means, said Nagel has a state-issued concealed-carry permit and that it was his understanding Nagel had a permit at the time of his arrest.

Current Kansas law prohibits anyone other than law enforcement officers from carrying a gun into a school if the school has posted a conspicuous sign banning guns, regardless of whether that person has a concealed-carry license.

The Wichita school board last week also approved a policy banning firearms from school district buildings or district-owned vehicles, except by law enforcement officers.
