MT. VERNON — The MVTHS administration is investigating allegations that a teacher has sexually harassed students. A member of the NAACP brought the organization’s concerns about the allegations to the school board at Monday night’s meeting.
The district, Mt. Vernon Police, Jefferson County State’s Attorney’s Office, and the Department of Children and Family Services are working together to investigate the claims. MVTHS Superintendent Jeff Fritchtnitch says the investigation has been ongoing since October. He could not comment further because it is a personnel issue.
