No Class: Teacher accused of sending provocative pictures to student

Posted: Updated:
NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

A North Ridgeville teacher is on paid leave after allegedly sending sexy pictures of herself to a student.

On Wednesday, another teacher heard rumors about the pictures, and told the Assistant Principal and School Resource Officer.

The teacher in question became aware people were talking about her and confessed to the Assistant Principal.

The teacher admits to sending two provocative pictures of herself in a bikini top to one student. She also admits to having inappropriate and flirtatious conversation, mainly texting, with at least one student.

Allegations have also surfaced indicating that the relationship with a student may have progressed to a physical sexual relationship. The teacher, however, has denied that claim of sexual contact.

Police are investigating.

The district's superintendent sent out this statement on Thursday:

The school district has placed a teacher on administrative leave with pay pending a thorough, internal investigation.  The district is working cooperatively with the city police department.
