Dighton-Rehoboth High School.

REHOBOTH -- A former Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School staff member is being investigated for alleged inappropriate behavior toward a female student, officials say.

Superintendent Anthony Azar said the man is no longer working for the school district.

The former employee had only been working for the school district for a year and underwent usual screening, Azar confirmed. He wouldn't say if the man was fired or quit and what position he held.

The superintendent referred all other questions to police.

Dighton Police Chief Robert MacDonald confirmed police are conducting an investigation but declined to reveal any details.

The high school is located in North Dighton.

Because of the age of the alleged victim or victims, the case is also being investigated by Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.

DCF director of public affairs Andrea Grossman said her agency is looking into an allegation that involves “abuse and neglect by a caregiver,” according to media reports.
