A teacher in the Oak Hill school district has apparently been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation into alleged inappropriate actions involving students.
Oak Hill Police Department Chief Chris Gruber told The Telegram Monday, September 16, his office has become aware of a situation and are "looking into it."
"The department is looking into the matter and the schools are conducting an internal investigation as well," Gruber said. He added school leaders are concerned and active in the process.
"Oak Hill Union Superintendent Mike McCoy's Office is aware of the situation," Gruber added. "I understand there is a teacher on administrative leave until their investigation is completed. We are directing calls for more particular information on this matter to Mr. McCoy's office."
Gruber again pointed about the schools are leading the investigation, but the police are giving the schools their full support. According to Gruber, the police department will take further action if the schools or the department itself deem it necessary to do so.
"Again, we are continuing to monitor the situation and as details develop the department will release more information to the public and media."
The Telegram made attempts to contact Superintendent McCoy's Office Monday, seeking comment, but was told he was out of the office.
