Pedestrian, hit by vehicle in Clark County, is seriously injured

Teacher on leave for investigation


A teacher at the Springfield-Clark Career Technology Center is on an administrative leave over allegations of misconduct, according to the superintendent.

Scott Rohrer Jr., 28, was placed on leave today and is under investigation for misconduct, Superintendent Rick Smith said in a media release. The matter has been turned over to the Springfield Police Division, and Smith referred all questions to the police.

Attempts to locate Rohrer for comment Wednesday were unsuccessful.

Smith told the Springfield News-Sun earlier Wednesday that he was investigating an allegation against Rohrer.

“We take those things seriously,” he said. “And I’m deeply committed to the prevention of any kind of sex abuse or harassment at our school and misconduct of all kinds.”

Sgt. Jeff Flores of the Springfield Police Division confirmed that the department is investigating Rohrer for allegations of inappropriate conduct involving a student.

“That’s what we’re looking at, that’s my understanding,” he said.

Flores said responding officers were preparing a report and a detective would be assigned.

Rohrer is listed as a culinary arts instructor for juniors on the CTC website.
