PIQUA, Ohio (WDTN) – A teacher at Piqua High School is accused of “unprofessional behavior” by “several students”, according to a letter released Tuesday by principal Tony Lyons.
The letter says the teacher is a former assistant band director and tennis coach.
An investigation into the allegations is underway, the letter says. No formal charges have been brought against the teacher, according to the Miami County courts.
“At Piqua High School, we care deeply about our students and take every accusation very seriously. We have not yet come to any conclusions, but we are conducting a thorough investigation and we will follow due process for all concerned,” the letter reads.
While the investigation is being conducted, the teacher has been placed on administrative leave and has been instructed not to communicate with the district or its students, Lyons said in the letter.
The Piqua Police Department and the Miami County Department of Job and Family Services are involved in the investigation, it said.
If anyone has any information or questions, the school asks that you contact the Piqua Police Department.
