A Louisiana school teacher has resigned amid allegations that she gave birth to a child fathered by a 17-year-old student, according to reports.
The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office said Thursday it received a report of a teacher with the Tangipahoa Parish School System engaging in an improper relationship with the student and launched an investigation.
“While we cannot share specific details regarding the investigation, we can confirm that the allegations were dealt with promptly, and the investigation process has been rigorous and thorough,” Edwards told WVUE.
“This type of investigation is time-consuming and is being handled with great care. Under no circumstances will we be rushed for closure,” he added.
No arrests have been made, police said.
“The Tangipahoa Parish System has been made aware of allegations that involve a former employee of the District,” TPSS Superintendent Melissa M. Stilley told The Post in a statement.
“As this matter involves confidential student and personnel issues, we are unable to comment further at this time, other than to confirm that student welfare is a priority of the School District and that an investigation is ongoing,” she said.
