    MELROSE, Mass. - A Melrose High School teacher has been placed on leave while officials conduct an investigation of alleged inappropriate behavior.

    According to the Superintendent of Schools Cyndy Taymore, the investigation launched by Melrose Public Schools stems from concerns raised about the teacher's alleged behavior that happened outside of school and not during work hours.

    The teacher in question has been employed by the school district for 14 years.

    According to Superintendent Taymore, Melrose Police has advised the school this is an administrative issue and no criminal activity is involved.

    “As a public school district focused at all times on providing a safe and secure learning environment for our students, we take any allegations of inappropriate behavior seriously,” Superintendent Taymore said. “We are releasing this information in the interests of transparency, but please understand that there are certain things we legally cannot say publicly at this time. However, I can report that the investigation has confirmed that no current students are involved.”
