In March, a second domestic protection order request was filed by a parent of another Indian Valley Intermediate School girl also alleging he had touched her inappropriately.
“Mr. Yowler has on multiple occasions hugged the minor child while grabbing minor child’s buttocks,” the protection order request says. “Mr. Yowler on multiple occasions has tried to (physically) force the minor child to sit on his lap.”

No date for a trial was announced Friday.
The Clark County Sheriff Office continues to investigate the allegations, Lt. Kristopher Shultz said, but no criminal charges have been filed.
Defense attorney Samuel Petroff didn’t respond to a request for comment Friday but previously said in a statement Yowler had done nothing wrong.
"He is dedicated to the teaching profession and has been so for the past 20 years," the statement says. "His students have always been his top priority and he has prided himself on making learning meaningful."
Yowler remains on paid leave from Greenon Local Schools, a school spokeswoman said. He taught second grade at Indian Valley Intermediate School before the allegations.
Many parents have also voiced support for Yowler. At a school board meeting in February, three parents told the Greenon board of education that Yowler should be allowed back in the classroom.
