Ahron Sherman Miner Staff Reporter
KINGMAN - A Kingman High School teacher who is being investigated for a potentially inappropriate relationship with a student or students was put on leave earlier this week pending the outcome of the probe.
"We're taking this very seriously," said Roger Jacks, the superintendent for Kingman Unified School District.
The Miner is not naming the teacher yet because the person hasn't been charged.
Jacks said a student came forward Monday with a complaint regarding the teacher. The Mohave County Sheriff's Office was notified, and the teacher was immediately put on leave.
Once the investigation was launched and the district and MCSO began asking questions, more students came forward with comments about the teacher.
"We're working closely with students and teachers," Jacks said. "The investigation is ongoing."

How many pedophiles does Kingman choose to employ in our schools? There has been an IT person, an educator at the academy and now this. All being fairly recent...very sad Kingman. I'm telling you Roger Jacks needs to go. Not only does this crap happen on his watch, but he also employs and supports administrators that bully and try to intimidate. Let's do this Kingman...new superintendent and school board.
