Police confirm probe of GJHS teacher

Grand Junction police confirmed Friday they are investigating a Grand Junction High School teacher who was removed from the classroom and placed on leave last week.

Police spokeswoman Kate Porras said the investigation is based on a complaint police received earlier this month. She declined to specify the nature of the investigation or say who filed the complaint.

Colleen Martin, School District 51 human resources director, said Thursday the teacher was placed on paid administrative leave on Aug. 15.

This is the fifth District 51 teacher to be investigated by local law enforcement in the last nine months. Three of the teachers were investigated for inappropriate sexual contact or communication of a sexual nature with students.

Another District 51 teacher was investigated for allegedly hitting a student.
