WEST FARGO — A West Fargo High School teacher has resigned, and sources within the school say police are involved.
WDAY News obtained an email sent to school staff Tuesday, Feb. 2, notifying them of Ron Thompson's immediate resignation.
The email goes on to say that staff should notify school administrators if Thompson was seen on campus or if he tried to contact staff or students.
Two sources at the school, who did not wish to be named, told WDAY police took Thompson's phone.
Reporters reached out to officials with West Fargo Public Schools, the school board and the West Fargo Police Department about the nature of the investigation.
School officials said they were unable to offer any details about what led up to the resignation or any involvement of the police.
The school board is expected to take action Monday related to the release of Thompson's contract.
Thompson was a teacher in the Career and Technology Education department and served as an advisor for the Technology Student Association, according to the school's website.
