HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) - A teacher at a college preparatory school has been placed on paid administrative leave following allegations she had an inappropriate relationship with a high school student.

The New Haven Register reports (https://cour.at/1oizWk4) Superintendent of Schools Garth Harries confirmed the teacher had been removed from Engineering and Science University Magnet School. He declined to name the teacher.

Harries says the alleged relationship was reported by a student. He says the school district immediately contacted police.

New Haven Public Schools said in a statement Thursday the teacher was removed from the classroom the previous day.

ESUMS is a public school for both middle and high school students. It’s located in Hamden.
