Scioto County Candor
East science teacher, Brian McClure, was suspended last Thursday, Feb. 22 without pay, according to East High School Principal James Mahlmeister.
It is unclear why exactly McClure was suspended, though there were accusations on social media of sexual misconduct involving a student.
Mahlmeister stated that the McClure was suspended for “unprofessional conduct as an educator.” The principal further stated that he was not able to get into specifics as to what the incident was all about, though he did say that McClure had since resigned his post as the science teacher at East High School.
Sgt. Steve Timberlake of the Portsmouth Police Department stated that he had no information on any investigation into McClure at this time.
The Scioto County Candor attempted to reach out to McClure; however, as of press time, he has not responded.
