ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Anchorage School District has banned military recruiters from the district’s campuses.

KTVA reports that the decision follows recent reports that allege recruiters from the Alaska Army National Guard made inappropriate advances toward high school students.

Superintendent Ed Graff calls the reports absolutely unacceptable. He says the school is reviewing its policies on adult-student boundaries to make the school’s expectations clear.

Last week, KTVA received documents stating that members of the Alaska Army National Guard’s recruiting staff were offering students alcohol and inviting them to parties.

Witnesses say a married recruiter had sexual relations with a female student.

Lt. Col. Lee Knowles from the Guard says the school hasn’t contact them, and he finds it regrettable that the district took this stance based on a media report.
