Terrebonne High School employees investigated for inappropriate sexual behavior

A complaint about the alleged behavior was filed Thursday, Feb. 13.

HOUMA, La. — Authorities say two Terrebonne High School employees are being investigated after alleged "inappropriate behavior" with students.

A statement from the Houma Police Department Monday said a complaint about the alleged behavior was filed Thursday, Feb. 13. The police department added that detectives are looking into the allegations but did not release the names of the two employees.

"Inappropriate behavior, from sexual, all the way up to allowing kids to do certain things, and I'll leave that there," said Houma Police Chief Dana Coleman. 

He said that someone made a report on the employees, who he said have multiple roles at the school. 

Coleman asked parents to talk to their children to see if they may have some information to share. He said sometimes talking to people leads to a "domino-effect" of more information becoming unearthed. 

The employees under investigation are on leave pending the findings. 

Anyone with information about the alleged behavior is asked to call Crimestoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or online at www.crimestoppersbr.org. Tipsters could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 in cash if the information leads to an arrest.

Terrebonne High School is located in Houma, La., and is part of the Terrebonne Parish School District.
