An employee at Burke High School is on administrative leave following possible allegations of inappropriate activities.
Authorities were first notified on Sept. 19, when a school resource officer at Burke was informed by Executive Principal Anna Dassing that “possible allegations of inappropriate activities may have taken place between current teacher … and juvenile students.”
The school employee’s name was redacted from an incident report provided to the City Paper, but the school resource officer noted that Dassing proceeded per Charleston County School District policy and the officer was “formally informed of the inappropriate activities” on Sept. 20.
Charleston County School District spokesman Andy Pruitt says that the employee in question is on administrative leave, but said he could not comment further regarding the personnel matter. According to Pruitt, the police department is investigating the matter, and the investigation is ongoing.
