Director: Local teacher suspended

A Unicoi County educator has been suspended without pay pending the results of an ongoing investigation.
In a phone interview with The Erwin Record on Monday, Director of Schools Denise Brown said the school system, as well as the Unicoi County Sheriff's Department, are conducting the investigation.
“The investigation began when I received a call on Friday,” Brown said.
Brown said the name of the teacher and the school where he or she was teaching were not being released at this time. She also said there was no timeline for when the investigation could conclude.
“There are a lot of things we have to investigate,” Brown said.
The Erwin Record will post updates online this week as this story develops.
