Humboldt, IA – A Humboldt teacher has been placed on administrative leave as an investigation is unfolding.

Publicly, the Humboldt Community School District has not commented on why the unnamed teacher has been placed on leave, nor what the investigation entails, but has released a statement regarding the district’s policy. The district says they are following district policy and procedures to investigate the issue.

“…the teacher is currently on administrative leave during the investigation. The district can’t publicly comment further as it is a confidential personnel matter, but families can be confident, however; that student safety remains our highest priority.”

A criminal investigation involved a search warrant that was executed Monday night with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation working jointly and no certain timeline was provided.
