Target 11: Perry High School teacher investigated for inappropriate behavior with student


PITTSBURGH -  A second Perry High School teacher has been suspended with pay after he allegedly made inappropriate advances toward students, reported Target 11 investigator Rick Earle.

Pittsburgh School District spokesperson Ebony Pugh confirmed to Target 11 that the teacher has been suspended with pay pending the results of an investigation by Pittsburgh Police and the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office.  

A letter sent home to parents Thursday said that the advances were “sexual in nature” and indicated that the teacher “may have had an inappropriate relationship with a student.”

Pugh said the teacher was just hired in August. 

The district also provided police with a list of students in the class and said police may be in contact with parents.

Several weeks ago, another teacher was placed on paid leave after a student said that teacher made sexual comments and touched her inappropriately.
