CHESTERTON, Ind. (WLS) — An Indiana teacher is off the job after allegations of an inappropriate relationship with a former student.
The former Chesterton High School student claims the relationship was more than five years ago with a teacher’s assistant. That person had since become a teacher at the school.
Chesterton High School officials said the former student came forward with the information in September, and the teacher was immediately removed from the classroom and fired.
A criminal investigation is underway. The principal said the Duneland School Corporation has been cooperating with local law enforcement and the Porter County prosecutor.
