CAHOKIA, IL (KTVI)-- An investigation into inappropriate contact with students has led to the suspension of a Cahokia High School teacher.

What we know is that a teacher`s assistant who also helps coach several sports teams has been suspended and that police are investigating.

The allegations are that the teacher`s assistant and coach had inappropriate contact with students.

Apparently, the contact began with what the school calls inappropriate Facebook postings. The school launched its own investigation. Then Cahokia police questioned the teacher and he was suspended.

No word yet from Cahokia police as to whether charges have been filed. No word on what the nature of any inappropriate contact was beyond the Facebook posts.
