Liberty-Benton teacher to be fired for alleged student relationship

Posted: Updated:

A Liberty-Benton teacher is out of a job after having alleged inappropriate relations with a student.

The Liberty-Benton school board took the first step towards firing choral director Bryon Black this week.

The Findlay Courier reports Black allegedly had inappropriate relations with an underage student this year.

Now, the district must wait for the Ohio Department of Education to hold a hearing about the termination. Black is currently on leave.


He is one of two employees under investigation in the Liberty-Benton district. A coach was fired last month for a similar allegation.

The school district says they have turned all information over to the sheriff's office and children's services. No charges have been filed against Black.
