The school year just started, but there's already a teacher accused of having sex with a student.
This time, it's 26-year-old Paradise Valley High School teacher Jordan Doneskey, who's accused of sexing up a 17-year-old student -- with approval from the girl's mother, according to police.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, police were tipped off to the situation, and the 17-year-old girl told investigators about several instances of sexual contact between her and Doneskey, both at her house and at Doneskey's.
Then police informed the girl's mother, which could seem like a horrifying moment for a mother, but no, she told police she knew all about it, according to the documents.
The girl's mother -- who police say has "an extensive employment history in the field of child protection" -- told the cops she actually "allowed" her daughter to have sex with Doneskey in her home, the documents say.
She was still employed as a social worker at the time of her arrest.
Doneskey admitted that he had sex with the girl "approximately" five times, according to the documents.

Doneskey -- an English and journalism teacher, according to his website -- was one of the girl's teachers this year, which has been the case for about two years now, the documents say.
Doneskey faces five counts of sexual conduct with a minor, while the girl's mother faces charges of child abuse and failure to report neglect of a minor.
Doneskey's bond was set at $15,000; the girl's mother was granted supervised release.
