Gladwin County Middle School Teacher Resigns After Violating Social Media Policy

A middle school teacher stepped down from his role after the school superintendent says he violated a social media policy and was put on leave.

The Gladwin Community Schools superintendent said the teacher resigned from Gladwin Junior High Monday.

The superintendent says the teacher was placed on administrative leave last week for talking with students on social media, which is against school rules for teachers to do so.

Right now the district won’t tell us the name of the teacher.

It is not believed that any contact was sexual, and a district investigation is underway.
