WEST MIFFLIN (KDKA) — A West Mifflin High School employee has been suspended and is being investigated for a possible relationship with a student
According to West Mifflin School District solicitor Gary Matta, allegations came about late last week regarding a potential relationship between a student and an employee.
Matta would not confirm if the employee was a teacher or if any of the alleged incidents took place on school property.
The employee was placed on paid administrative leave Friday and will remain on leave until the investigation is concluded.
The school district is working with West Mifflin Police on the investigation.
Matta says the school and police have had discussions with anyone who may have knowledge of the reported relationship, but at this point, no one they’ve spoken with has had any involvement in the situation.
According to Matta, it is unclear what future the employee will have with the district.
The school can’t comment on the student’s age or if that person is still attending classes at West Mifflin.
Matta says as the investigation develops, they will be making everyone in the district aware of the what’s happening.
