Melrose High School Teacher Placed on Leave
MELROSE — Superintendent of Schools Cyndy S. Taymore reports that a Melrose High School teacher has been placed on administrative leave while officials conduct an investigation of allegedly inappropriate behavior.
The faculty member has been employed with the district for approximately 14 years. The investigation by the Melrose Public Schools stems from concerns raised about allegedly inappropriate behavior that occurred outside of the school and not during work hours.
Superintendent Taymore has been in contact with the Melrose Police Department, which has advised the school district that this is an administrative matter that does not involve criminal activity.
“As a public school district focused at all times on providing a safe and secure learning environment for our students, we take any allegations of inappropriate behavior seriously,” Superintendent Taymore said. “We are releasing this information in the interests of transparency, but please understand that there are certain things we legally cannot say publicly at this time. However, I can report that the investigation has confirmed that no current students are involved.”
