MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- The Merrill School District is without a band director after accusations of inappropriate behavior. 

High School Band Director Matt Callope was placed on administrative leave one week ago, and resigned Tuesday after being accused of questionable behavior with a student. School district officials have not said exactly what that questionable behavior is.

An internal district investigation was about to begin when Callope left his job after serving four years. Merrill Police are now in charge of the investigation.
