BIBB COUNTY, Ga. (WGXA) - According to a representative, a Bibb County School teacher is being investigated for having an inappropriate relationship with a middle schooler and is no longer employed with the district.
Bibb County Schools immediately responded to WGXA's inquiry, with the message they sent to parents Monday night:
Howard Middle parents, the Bibb County School District received a report late last week regarding a Howard Middle School employee who is alleged to have had an inappropriate relationship with a Howard Middle student. We immediately responded to this allegation and reported it to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office (BSO) for further investigation. The District is fully cooperating with BSO throughout the investigation. The employee is no longer employed with the District. While we are not able to discuss this with you further, we want to reassure you we are taking this matter very seriously. The safety and security of our students and staff is and will continue to be of the utmost importance. Thank you.
WGXA contacted the sheriff's office at the same time we contacted the school system Monday night, however, the sheriff's office was unable to provide immediate insight into the relationship, stating it will work on the request, Tuesday morning.
