A Boston charter school teacher has resigned following allegations of misconduct with a high school student, Boston.com reported.
Fox 29 reported that the Hyde Park school alerted parents to the situation via email, stating that “This week, our community's trust has been violated. Last week, we learned of alleged misconduct between a high school student who is over the age of 18 and a faculty member."
The teacher at Boston Prep Charter School was initially put on paid administrative leave after school officials received reports of misconduct. Since the student is over the age of 18, no charges have been pressed against the teacher.
"This is a difficult time for our school community," school officials wrote in a statement. "The alleged misconduct is an affront to our values. Our focus now is on supporting the student involved, as well as ensuring all our students, teachers and staff have access to services and supports to move forward."
Members of the school’s community are reportedly shocked and disappointed.
"She was a wonderful teacher," parent Darlene Allegro told Fox 29. "She really was. My kids loved her. It is very disappointing."
