On Friday afternoon the Jamestown School board held an emergency meeting to approve the resignation and separation agreement with high school teacher Scott Lumia.
According to the Post-Journal, Jamestown Superintendent Bret Apthorpe provided a brief statement following the board action, confirming the resignation, but also said that as with any district personnel matter, school officials cannot comment on specifics.
Apthorpe said the board and his office can only confirm the district investigates any concerning report and works with state and federal law enforcement authorities if necessary, and as appropriate, with the best interests of our students at the forefront.
The Post-Journal has reported that its sources claim the Federal Bureau of Investigations is investigating a case, but officials from the FBI will neither confirm nor deny involvement.
WRFA has learned from sources that Lumia is accused of allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a Jamestown student.
Lumia has been teaching at the district since 1999. Prior to his resignation, the district placed Lumia on paid administrative leave on Nov. 21.
In his statement on Friday, Apthorpe also said that the Jamestown School Board holds the highest expectations concerning student well-being and safety and will always take swift action when appropriate.
