Monday, dozens of students reportedly walked out of Jimtown High School in support of a former teacher.
Friday afternoon the schools announced that teacher Mike Hosinski was no longer employed by the Baugo Community Schools. In January he had submitted a request to retire, according to WSBT.
Over the weekend a second news release clarified that Hosinski had submitted a request to retire immediately after the incident at the school, where he had allegedly harmed a student during an altercation. Previous reports that he was fired were erroneous.
The investigation is ongoing and a school board meeting was planned for Monday night that would discuss the matter further.
