GATESVILLE, TX (KXXV) -

Gatesville police said that a Gatesville Junior High coach/teacher’s aide has resigned after allegations of giving suspected performance enhancing drugs to a student.

GISD officials said they learned about the incident after a community member was concerned and brought the information to the GISD Athletic Director, Kyle Cooper.

“Upon learning of the alleged allegation, GISD launched an internal investigation,” district Superintendent Eric Penrod said in a statement. “At this point, said employee resigned, yet GISD continued to investigate the accusation and transitioned all information to the local authorities, where there is an ongoing investigation.”

Penrod said the incident has also been reported to the Texas Education Agency for educator misconduct.

At this time the name of the former employee and type of controlled substance have not been released.
