Marshall Schools staff member suspended for messages with student


An investigation is underway following the alleged discovery of inappropriate messages sent between a staff member at Marshall Middle School and a student attending classes there. The situation was explained in a letter sent on Sunday, December 5, by Becky Jones, acting superintendent of Marshall Public Schools.

According to the letter, the accused staff member is not a teacher at the school, but the position in which he is employed has not been disclosed as well as any information to identify this person. The staff member was said to have been immediately placed on administrative leave when the alleged communications were discovered just before the end of the school day on Wednesday December 1.

The school reports that evidence of messages between the staff member and the student was found on student monitoring software. After school officials investigated the matter further, they reportedly uncovered other conversations of a similar nature between the staff member and the student on school and personal accounts.

Following the additional discovery, the school turned over all information to local law enforcement, who are also investigating the matter. No other details related to the investigation have been released.

Marshall Public Schools says the student’s parents were notified immediately upon discovery of their findings.

No information on the age, gender, of the student or staff member has been released at this time. The district says it has open and transparent communications with local authorities and parents regarding the case.
