An investigation into allegations against a Dickson High School teacher is currently underway.

Dickson Public Schools Superintendent Jeff Colclasure confirmed the ongoing investigation Wednesday, Nov. 13. The teacher is accused of having made verbal threats against a student.

Since the incident has become an employment issue, Colclasure said Oklahoma state law regarding personnel privacy prohibits any further comment concerning the teacher’s employment status or the circumstances of the investigation.

The school system has dealt with similar cases in the past and in each referred to the same state law, Colclasure said. “That’s just the law, we can’t talk about it.”

More information will be released as the investigation develops.
