GRANT, Mich. --  Allegations of inappropriate conduct involving a teacher at Grant High School led to a resignation.

Monday night, the district was still not ready to reveal what's involved in the case.

FOX 17 took questions to the school board meeting and spoke with the superintendent. After a releasing a statement last week, Superintendent Jonathon Whan says the district isn't prepared to comment further while there's an ongoing police investigation but confirmed allegations of "inappropriate conduct" involving a high school teacher.

The inappropriate activity did led to a teacher being put on administrative leave.  Shortly after, that teacher resigned. Whan would not confirm whether the inappropriate activity took place on school grounds.

A letter was also sent home to parents in the district that urged anyone with questions to contact the superintendent, adding situations like this are rare in the district, and encouraging everyone to refrain from any kind of "speculation."

We have reached out to the sheriff's department in Newaygo but haven't heard back.
