Whitson could not provide the teacher’s name, details about what the teacher said or what kind of leave he is on.
“We are responding to some things that were said inappropriately in a classroom, and it was said to students,” Whitson said. “(The teacher) is not in school today.”
Whitson could not say whether the teacher had been acting inappropriately for a period of time, but he said the school system is investigating a single incident brought to its attention.
