RANTOUL -- A teacher at Rantoul Township High School was put on administrative leave after a former student filed a complaint with police. The Champaign County State's Attorney says the alleged victim was 18-years old at the time of the incident and, by law, a consenting adult.

It's unclear what the complaint involved and district officials would not confirm or deny if the incident broke school code. As of Wednesday, Bryan Reynolds is still on administrative leave from his position as teacher and band director. The superintendent wouldn't specify if or when Reynolds would return to the classroom.

RANTOUL -- A Rantoul Township High School teacher is under investigation for misconduct. District officials say a former student complained about the teacher to police.

As soon as they heard about it, the superintendent says the teacher was placed on administrative leave. This is a picture of Bryan Reynolds, teacher and band director, from the school's website.

District leaders aren't releasing any information about what he's accused of doing, but they say they don't believe the misconduct happened on school property or during the school day. They also say, as far as they know, no current students are involved.

The school's website states the winter concert scheduled for Tuesday night has been postponed. The Champaign County State's Attorney says, as of Tuesday, no charges have been filed against Reynolds.
