ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) - A teacher at a central Pennsylvania Catholic elementary school has been suspended for “inappropriate” but not sexual behavior toward a student.

Altoona-Johnstown diocese spokesman Tony DeGol announced the suspension Monday.

It involves an unnamed teacher at Holy Trinity Catholic School, a Pre-K through 8th grade school in Altoona.

DeGol says the “alleged behavior is not sexual in nature” but the diocese has suspended the teacher while the school reviews the allegations.

The grade level of the student involved has also not been disclosed.
