Paul Roberts, a math teacher who had been named a Teacher of the Year in the Stafford school district, is accused of sending inappropriate electronic communications to at least two students.
The messages were sent using "text messaging and social media," according to a letter sent to parents from the district.
"After a thorough investigation it has been determined that the teacher did engage in inappropriate conduct as outlined by district policy," superintendent Lance Hindt wrote. "Appropriate district action has been taken towards the teacher and he has been relieved of duty. There have been unsubstantiated reports that this inappropriate conduct may have involved additional students, however, I want to assure you that we will continue to investigate these reports."More »
