INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Two central Indiana teachers have resigned amid unrelated allegations of inappropriate conduct.

A Noblesville High School teacher resigned earlier this month after being accused of inappropriate conduct with a former student in 2012.

“Safety is our top priority and we take claims of this nature very seriously. We will provide further information to parents as available,” said a representative for Noblesville Schools.

Officials say they don’t believe this incident is related to the 2015 case, in which former Noblesville High School teacher Michael Douce pleaded guilty to having a sexual relationship with two students.

In a separate case, a teacher at Western High School in Howard County has resigned after a sheriff’s investigation was launched into claims of inappropriate behavior.

Charges have not been filed in either case.
