A Bryan County school district employee who had been placed on leave in connection with allegations of misconduct has resigned.
The teacher chose to resign effective immediately, according to the school district. The teacher's name has not been released.
Superintendent Brad Anderson told WTOC earlier this week that a male teacher at Bryan County High school was put on paid leave on April 17 after they received an anonymous email that said the teacher conducted inappropriate behavior around students during an out of town cross country meet in November.
Allegations include alcohol being involved and a female student staying overnight in his hotel room.
The school system conducted its own investigation. School officials are interviewing students and anyone else who may have been involved. They also reported the allegations to the Division of Family and Children Services, which is required by state law.
Dr. Paul Brooksher, school superintendent, said in a statement: "Bryan County Schools number one priority is its students and we take any allegation regarding employee misbehavior very seriously. These type allegations will always be investigated to the fullest extent possible."
