Teacher being investigated
The Greenville County Sheriff’s office is investigating a “potentially inappropriate” relationship between a teacher and a student at Blue Ridge High School, according to information released last week.
This information is according to a Feb. 1 email from Sgt. Ryan Flood:
“On [January 30th], investigators with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office received information from administrators at Blue Ridge High School regarding a potentially inappropriate relationship between a teacher and a student,” Flood said in an email. “The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been brought forth as of the issuance of this statement. Additional information will be released once it’s readily available.”
Flood said no further information was available.
According to Greenville County Schools Spokesperson Beth Brotherton, law enforcement was notified as soon as the district found out about the incident, and the employee in question has been placed on leave.
Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated the date in which the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office began its investigation into this case. That correct date is January 30. The Greer Citizen published the incorrect date based on information initially received from the Sheriff’s Office. We regret this error.
