TISHOMINGO COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - The state department of education is investigating an issue out of the Tishomingo County school district.

The investigation continues after receiving information that a Tishomingo County High School teach was fired. According to Superintendent Christie Holly, that teacher was terminated on October 20th for violation of ethics code.

Clark says an issue was brought to the attention of the school board that lead to an immediate investigation.

"The active portion of the investigation is over or about to be over, however, there are elements of it that could continue over into next year," said Clark.

At this time, the state department of education is involved after receiving information.

"The department of education has been kept abreast of this," said Clark. "We have certain reporting requirements that we have to answer for them. Any case of a teacher termination we have to follow those steps of protocol."

Unable to release specifics, Clark did say there should not be any concern with the safety of the school.

"All the children in the school district are safe," said Clark. "Again, that is our number one priority in this school district is to provide a learning environment."
