TUCSON, Ariz. — A Mountain View High School teacher resigned Monday after reports of an alleged inappropriate relationship with an 18-year-old student surfaced.

According to Marana Unified School District, the school administration contacted the Pima County Sheriff's Department after hearing the allegations. Following an investigation from PCSD, no arrest was made.

The district says it took immediate personnel action and the teacher resigned.

"I want to take this opportunity to commend the student who brought this information to our attention so that school administration could respond immediately. Mountain View and the District take allegations very serious and we are proud of our students and their response to see something, hear something, say something," said principal Todd Garelick.

The district says the student involved was not a student in the teacher’s class. Due to confidentiality and personnel laws, further information may not be released.

MUSD says it takes actions of this nature seriously and that parents and students can report concerns to school staff or call 520-518-4181.
