Noblesville HS teacher under investigation

INDIANAPOLIS - A teacher at Noblesville High School was being investigated after accusations of "inappropriate conduct with a minor student," a school spokeswoman said Friday.

Marnie Cooke, director of marketing and communications for the district, said the teacher was immediately removed from contact with students.

"Student safety is our number one priority and Noblesville Schools takes an allegation of this nature very seriously," she wrote in a statement to media.

Cooke said the district contacted the Noblesville Police Department and has "begun the process of terminating employment."

Bruce Barnes, with Noblesville police, said the department heard from the district on Wednesday.

Barnes couldn't release any details because it's an ongoing investigation, but he said no charges have been filed in the case.

Neither the school nor police would comment on the specific details of allegations or the identity of the educator.
