JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — Two teachers at Deer Creek Middle School have been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.
Both James Sudano, who teaches concert band, orchestra and symphonic band, and Brent Resler, who teaches 7th grade social studies, had separate allegations against them about inappropriate and unprofessional comments made in front of students. It is unknown what those comments may have been.
Investigators from the Jeffco legal services department are looking into the allegations.
In a letter sent home to parents, Jeffco Public Schools asked families not to interpret the investigation as an indication of any wrongdoing.
“Administrative leave and investigations are part of normal district procedures in these types of situations,” the letter reads. “During the teachers’ absences, we will ensure your students continue to receive instruction."
