An investigation into the actions of a Jacksboro Middle School teacher is underway.

On Wednesday Dr. Michael Martin, director of schools, was forced to suspend a male faculty member with pay while questions concerning his contact with a student are being investigated.

“I made the decision to suspend a staff member due to allegations of improper conduct with a student,” Martin explained on Thursday morning.

Jackboro Police Chief Danny Chapman confirmed his department is in charge of an investigation regarding a teacher. He said the investigation began Monday.

 The JPD is currently in the process of interviewing potential victims and witnesses.

Chapman deemed the case an ongoing investigation.
