Franklin County Superintendent Chrissy Jones said one of the school system’s teachers has resigned amidst allegations of inappropriate conduct.
Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton confirmed that his office is involved in an ongoing investigation.
“The teacher is no longer employed at Franklin County Schools,” Jones told The State Journal Monday.
The result of the investigation will be referred to a prosecutor, Jones said.
She wouldn’t release the teacher’s name or the name of the school where he or she was teaching or discuss what prompted the investigation.
“It would be highly inappropriate for me to make any comment at this time,” Melton said.
Additional details will be published as they become available in print and here at www.state-journal.com.
