SPRINGFIELD -- An area school district has reached a settlement with the family of a teen who claims he had a sexual relationship with a former teacher. The family sued the school district after the teacher was arrested.

Jennifer Tyree taught English at Lanphier High School. The family found out about the relationship after Tyree's husband told the boy's mother. The district will pay the family $100,000.
