Oregon teacher put on leave after students say he had a gun
SALEM, Ore. - An Oregon high school science teacher is on leave after being accused of bringing a gun to school.
The Statesman Journal reports that students alerted officials Friday that they saw the teacher with a gun at Sprague High School in the capital of Salem.
Lillian Govus with Salem-Keizer School District said she couldn't confirm if the weapon was loaded.
It's unclear if the teacher had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Regardless, it's against school policy to have a gun on campus.
The district's policy doesn't specify potential disciplinary actions. The teacher was placed on leave Monday.
District officials haven't involved police in their investigation.
