PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police are investigating a teacher at a school serving kindergarten through eighth-grade students in Portland.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/NgBQ0H ) that police went to Astor School Tuesday to investigative the report that a teacher was behaving inappropriately in class and with students.

Portland Police spokesman Peter Simpson says the teacher has not been arrested.

He says “preliminary information given to police indicates the behavior could be considered criminal conduct.”

The school’s principal sent a note to families simply saying a teacher was placed on administrative leave Tuesday while police are investigating a matter.

The district declined to provide further details.
