Weston Police are investigating a teacher’s alleged inappropriate actions involving former students, Police Chief John Troxell confirmed Wednesday.
“We have an active investigation, so I can’t comment further on what it’s about,” because doing so could jeopardize the investigation, Troxell said.
On Tuesday, Dr. Colleen Palmer, superintendent of schools, sent out an email to parents of Weston students to notify them that David Eger, a technology education teacher, had been placed on administrative leave “from his position and all related responsibilities.”
Troxell said he notified the schools of the department’s investigation, who then made the decision to place Eger on leave.
“As this information becomes more well-known to our students, there may be a host of emotional reactions,” Palmer wrote in the email. “Our administrators and counseling professionals will be available to assist students and their families as needed.”
Those who may have information helpful to the investigation are encouraged to contact Sergeant Matthew Brodacki of the Weston Police Department at 203-222-2624.
