BOSTON (AP) - A Catholic school in Lawrence has contacted law enforcement about an administrator who was recently fired.

A spokesman for Central Catholic High School says a former student alleges he was drugged and raped by the administrator, Andrew Nikonchuk, in 2006.

Nikonchuk, of Lowell, was fired on Tuesday. School officials say he violated policies pertaining to appropriate social boundaries between students and faculty.

The student graduated in 2008 and contacted the school last week. The school says it reported the allegation to the Lowell Police Department and Middlesex County District Attorney.

The district attorney’s office confirmed the case has been referred there, but wouldn’t comment further.

Nikonchuk has not responded to requests for comment. He oversaw curriculum and instruction.
