Martinsville schools have been involved with two investigations regarding misconduct.

The Martinsville School District has placed a second grade teacher on administrative leave in response to an ongoing investigation into teacher misconduct. Martinsville School Board President Ken Costin says the district isn’t releasing any details about the case.

The school board hired an attorney to investigate school misconduct shortly after the high school’s boys’ basketball coach, Tim Wolf was charged with public indecency. But Costin says the two investigations are separate.

“Our investigation is still continuing,” he says. “The state police is still continuing an investigation with regards to Mr. Wolf.”

The school board has said it is reviewing its conduct policies and will decide what actions to take after the investigation is complete.

Costin says, on the brighter side, the school is interviewing new candidates for the coaching position, and expects to hire a new coach by next week.
