A teacher has been accused of “inappropriately” touching himself while in class at Walt Disney Magnet School

A teacher has been accused of “inappropriately” touching himself while in class at Walt Disney Magnet School in Uptown last week.

A witness reported that the accident occurred around noon on November 16 and that several students between the ages of 10 and 11 saw it, according to Chicago police.

“Several students have reported that a faculty member behaved inappropriately while teaching,” Disney Director Paul Riscus wrote in a letter to families. “I want to assure you that we are aware of the allegations, and we immediately reported the matter to the district as soon as we became aware.”

A Chicago Public Schools spokesperson said the teacher, 29, was banned from working at CPS during the investigation. The spokesperson said the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services has been notified.

“I am working closely with the district to conduct a full investigation and response in accordance with CPS policy, as well as working with the CPS Student Protection Office and Article IX to provide support for any affected students,” Riscus wrote.

District III investigators are investigating.
