Inappropriate contact: Supt. Reed accepts resignation of teacher
Superintendent Reed: Adair County School District has zero tolerance on inappropriate contact between staff and students, regardless of mean. Reed does stress that the student in this latest case was not a minor.
On Wednesday, November 4, 2015 Superintendent Alan Reed accepted a voluntary resignation letter from an Adair County High School teacher. There had been accusations circulating online of inappropriate involvement, also involving social media, between an ACHS teacher and a female student, which is violation of the District's Acceptable Use Policy for online contact with students.
The matter was investigated by law enforcement and Reed says copies of documents from the investigation have been submitted to the Educational Professional Standards Board (EPSB). EPSB is the agency which issues teacher certification. EPSB will further investigate, he said.
The situation violated board policy, a KRS statute, and a KAR (Kentucky Administrative Regulation).
When contacted, Reed stated that the individual, Christopher Lowe, an English Teacher at ACHS, had resigned on the date he was confronted, November 4, 2015.
Supt. Reed said the student involved is not a minor.
Mr. Reed reiterated the zero tolerance stance he has taken and will continue to take on inappropriate contact between staff and students, regardless of means.
