Teacher fired over alleged "inappropriate behavior"

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Fox 41 News has learned that a Central Hardin High School teacher has been fired after allegations that he engaged in "inappropriate behavior" with one or more of his students.

John Wright, director of public relations for the Hardin County school district, tells Fox 41 that Steven Gray was terminated Monday.

Gray worked as a social studies teacher and boys' cross country coach at the school.

The termination came after the school received an anonymous phone call earlier in the day. The caller made the allegations against Gray, and when school officials investigated, they decided to fire Gray.

Wright says a substitute teacher is now in place.

He would not specify the gender of the victim, or whether more than one student was involved. He added that Kentucky State Police are now investigating.

Fox 41 contacted Kentucky State Police Detective Terry Whittaker, who confirmed that police were investigating allegations of a teacher having inappropriate contact with students, but he would not specify which high school was involved.

Detective Whittaker declined to comment further on the case.
