Police are looking into a video that allegedly records audio of a Hutchinson High School teacher committing a sexual act over a digital learning platform.

The incident allegedly happened Thursday night, and the video has been widely shared on social media.

“The district is aware of the allegations and has taken action according to district policy, which includes reporting to the appropriate authorities,” Hutchinson Superintendent Daron VanderHeiden said. “The district takes all allegations seriously and is investigating and cooperating with local law enforcement.”

Hutchinson Police Chief Tom Gifferson said the department has been notified of the recording and allegations and is investigating. So far there have been no charges.

“We have to rule out if it’s legitimate or not before going forward,” Gifferson said.
