GARDNER, WEST VIRGINIA (WVVA) - West Virginia State Police are investigating a male teacher at PikeView High School for misconduct with a student.

The incident was first reported just weeks ago. Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ash says the police are still early in the investigation.

"It is turning into a bigger investigation than what we first hoped," Ash said.

Sergeant Clemons with the West Virginia State Police is heading the investigation but would not comment on the case.

No charges have been filed and the name of the teacher is not being released.

Ash says more details will be released after the police report is complete.

The Mercer County Board of Education will not comment on the investigation, but released a notice regarding the matter on Tuesday.

" By order of Gregory Prudich, President, the public is hereby notified that the Mercer County Board of Education will meet in Special Session on the 29th day of January, 2013, at 7:00 PM in the Seminar Center at the Mercer County Technical Education, 1397 Stafford Drive, Princeton, WV for the following purpose: Employee Disciplinary Action."
