Dave McMillen, a ninth-grade science teacher in Selah, Wash., resigned Thursday after a student found a camera hidden underneath a classroom desk, the Yakima Herald reported.
The resignation comes as a part of a settlement accepted by the Selah School Board, but the terms of the action have not been released, KNDO reported.
Investigators are looking into the incident as a case of voyeurism, and Selah Police informed the station they are still looking into the memory cards and computers acquired with a search warrant from the teacher's home.
An email sent Friday from the Selah School Superintendent reveals information about McMillen's termination, KIMA reports.
"At their meeting last night the Selah School Board approved a settlement agreement with ninth grade science teacher Dave McMillen that provides for his termination of employment by the school district. A temporary substitute teacher has been in that classroom for the past two weeks. Beginning Monday, October 31 a science endorsed teacher will begin teaching the class for the remainder of the school year. If you have any questions please contact Superintendent Steve Chestnut at 697-0706, or email@example.com"
