By Stephen Betts, BDN Staff

WALDOBORO, Maine — Waldoboro police are gathering information concerning a complaint against a teacher who resigned this week from Medomak Valley High School.

Police Chief Bill Labombarde said Friday afternoon that the school initially contacted the school resource officer on Thursday and that later the chief, the resource officer and a detective met with the principal.

The teacher was not at the school when the officers arrived, the chief said, but had resigned.

The chief would not offer details on the nature of the complaint and said that the department was “gathering more information. A formal investigation has not yet begun.”

MVHS Principal Harold Wilson confirmed that a teacher resigned on Thursday, but said he was not able to comment further and referred questions to the superintendent.

Superintendent Sue Pratt was out of the office Friday and not available for comment.

Medomak Valley High School serves students from Waldoboro, Warren, Union, Friendship and Washington.
