Seattle teacher on leave after alleged misconduct with teenager

A Seattle elementary teacher has been placed on administrative leave after the school district received a report of possible sexual misconduct with a teenage girl.

The teacher, who works at View Ridge Elementary, was put on leave Nov. 25, interim Principal Kathy Jolly said in a letter to families Monday.

No View Ridge students were involved in the alleged incident, Jolly said. The teacher was put on leave immediately after the Seattle Police Department told the district they had received a report of the possible misconduct.  The teacher has been instructed to have no contact with students or attend any Seattle Public Schools event, the letter said.
