A Basehor-Linwood High School teacher has been placed on paid administrative leave as a result of allegations of an inappropriate relationship with a student.
According to Basehor Police Chief Lloyd Martley, a 16-year-old female student told school administrators on May 19 that she had been involved in a consensual sexual relationship with a 44-year-old district teacher. The teacher was suspended May 20.
Martley said the department was still in preliminary stages of investigating the allegation. He said police had been conducting interviews and hoped to send the case to Leavenworth County prosecutors within a week. No charges have been filed and no arrests have been made.
