Teacher makes a mistake

Adams said an investigation revealed that after a presentation to the class originating from his laptop, the teacher instructed students to work on their own.

"As the students worked independently, the teacher personally accessed inappropriate material on his laptop," Adams said in a statement. "The teacher was apparently unaware that his computer was still connected to the wireless projector in the classroom."

The teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

"I regret that the students in the class, and now many other students and families, have been subjected to this inappropriate material. Counseling support is and will continue to be made available for any student impacted by this incident," Adams said.
