Passaic Valley High School Teacher Put on Administrative Leave Pending Ongoing Investigation


LITTLE FALLS, N.J.- Earlier this morning, one of Passaic Valley High School’s business teachers was put on administrative leave with pay until the end of the school year.

According to sources, the teacher was in his first period class when he received a call to head to the office.

Sources have told TAPInto that students were later escorted out of the classroom, where it was closed off and no one was allowed access to the room. Sources said police were at the school and they reportedly went into the classroom where they confiscated a computer and safe.

The teacher was known for supervising a student-led business program that included management of the school store. For a period a time, rumors and questions arose by students and faculty about the operations of the school store.

There is an ongoing investigation and it is a reminder that all parties are innocent until proven guilty. We will update with details as they are provided by the district and the police.
