Burgard BPS teacher under investigation for lewd photo

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A teacher at Burgard High School has been placed on administrative leave as police investigate accusations that he had sent an inappropriate photo to a student.

As of late this afternoon the teacher has not been charged, so News 4 is withholding his name.

Buffalo public schools declined to comment, saying only the teacher was placed on administrative leave and that it’s a personnel matter.

More than one parent contacted News 4 in the past 24 hours after the lewd photo was shared allegedly by a student at McKinley high school. They tell News 4 that the teacher sent the photo to a student at McKinley. The school district said it was unsure about where the photo was disseminated.

The photo in question is of a man laying down with his genitals exposed and with his face visible.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
