COLBY, WI (WSAU) -  In February, Colby Schools Superintendent Dr. Steven Kolden confirmed that a male teacher was placed on administrative leave while investigators checked out allegations of inappropriately touching a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old on two different occasions. Wednesday night, that teacher was reinstated by the school board.

The district had little to say publicly then, and little to say now. The school board reinstated the teacher on Superintendent Kolden’s recommendation.  Board member Eric Elmhorst confirmed that action.  "He is now reinstated.  There isn't anything else that I would like to add at this time."

The teacher was not charged with an offense, so his name has been withheld.

Marshfield Police investigators said last month the matter involved an offense which occurred outside of Wisconsin with a 17-year-old. School officials are satisfied with the results of the investigation. The alleged incident with an 18-year-old male three years ago was not under investigation.
