A small town school is dealing with a difficult allegation involving a teacher and student.
A relative of a district employee said the shakeup at West Franklin High involves a teacher in his 30s and a 16-year-old female student.
She said the allegations surfaced just recently and revolved around sexual misconduct over an extended period of time.
One resident KCTV5 spoke with was in disbelief.
Another was sad and sympathetic to the girl and her family.
Both described a strong, supportive, Christian family, with children who have always been well-performing and well-behaved students.
KCTV5 was unable to reach the superintendent or Sheriff for comment, but the local paper quotes them as saying that the suspected employee is on administrative leave and the criminal investigation is still in the early stages.
