PLEASANT VIEW, Utah (AP) - A northern Utah high school teacher has been placed on leave after officials say she had students list slang terms for genitalia as part of a class exercise.

Weber High School teacher Ashley Williams used the lesson Friday in her class titled “Adult Rolls and Financial Literacy.”

Ogden-Weber UniServ director Matt Ogle says Williams learned of the exercise at a conference paid for by the district.

District spokesman Nate Taggart tells the Standard-Examiner (https://bit.ly/1eu9e1J)a student Friday complained to administrators, who then found the pertinent words on a whiteboard.

Williams has taught in Weber schools for about eight years.

Officials say it’s the first time she used the exercise in the class offering college credit from Weber State University.

Taggart says officials have received calls on both sides of the issue.
