A substitute teacher charged with child sex abuse may have taught at more schools than previously thought.

Steven Katz is charged with child sexual abuse in Montgomery County but also taught in Howard County.

Right now, there are no charges against him in Howard County.

Katz turned himself in to police last month.

An 11-year-old boy at Cloverly Elementary School in Silver Spring accused Katz of inappropriately touching him.

The Howard County Public School System determined that Katz worked as a substitute teacher at a number of schools in the district from 2016 - 2018.

After further investigation, it was determined he worked during the 2012 - 2015 school years at a number of additional schools.

The district says its contacted the principals of those schools and they will reach out directly to their school community.

Montgomery County Police request that parents who suspect that their child was victimized by this individual to contact detectives at 240-773-5400.

Parents or guardians who believe that their child may have had an inappropriate contact with any individual at any time are asked to contact Howard County Police Department Detectives at 410-313-2630 or the Department of Social Services at 410-872-4203.
