Lassen Elementary School in North Hills is the latest local institution to remove a teacher for "inappropriate behavior," NBC LA is reporting.
Parents were notified in a letter dated March 1 that a kindergarten teacher was "removed from the school" after allegations of inappropriate contact with a student, LAUSD officials confirmed Tuesday morning.
"This letter is to inform you that an allegation has been made of inappropriate behavior involving a staff member," Principal Dana Carter said in the letter. "Upon receiving the information, the proper authorities were notified. As part of the investigation, the employee has been temporarily removed from the school."
LAUSD officials said the male teacher was moved to a non-teaching facility during the investigation. It was not immediately known how long the man had been teaching within the district.
