A teacher who works for Kenosha School of Technology Enhanced Curriculum (KTEC) has been placed on administrative leave for alleged improper behavior with a young female student. According to a confidential source, a male teacher was using snapchat with a young girl, under 13 years old in an attempt to form a relationship.
KUSD spokesperson Tanya Ruder acknowledged only that “We have a KTEC employee on administrative leave. I cannot share any further details as this is a personnel matter.”
KCE reached out to KTEC Principal Scott Hodges to ask him why there was a delay between him learning of the alleged conduct, and him notifying the district administration. We didn’t hear back.
“The KPD is currently investigating allegations of inappropriate communications involving a teacher and a student at the KTEC West campus,” said Lt. Hecker, Kenosha Police public information officer.
The teacher received an OWI last year and is scheduled to go to a jury trial next month. KCE will not be naming the teacher unless criminal charges are filed or he is disciplined by the school district.
