A teacher at Oak Park High School is no longer on the job after he was accused of sending “inappropriate communications” to a former student.
North Kansas City school district officials on Tuesday did not describe the specifics of the incident, but said the district had received reports of the inappropriate messages and that Adam Farley, the high school’s band director, is no longer employed by the school district.
A spokeswoman for North Kansas City Schools said the district was cooperating with a law enforcement investigation.
The school district on Tuesday released a statement about the investigation:
“North Kansas City Schools has always identified the safety and security of its students as its highest priority. To that end, the district has board policies and procedures in place that prohibit inappropriate communications between staff and students,” the statement read in part.
“At this time, there is an ongoing investigation into the matter, and the district is cooperating with our partners in law enforcement. Due to the nature of the allegations, the district is unable to provide specific information about its role in the investigation. Any further questions should be referred to law enforcement.”
