According to a letter sent out to district parents Tuesday evening, Superintendent Brian Davis says the district became aware of the allegations from former students within 24 hours of the letter being sent out.
The school district placed English teacher, Kevin Schneider, on paid administrative leave pending the formal investigation into the allegations.
Davis warned parents that "speculation can be harmful to all involved." The district will update parents as the school's internal investigation continues.
Parents with questions about the investigation are encouraged to contact Superintendent Brian Davis at 616-494-2005.
