Teacher on leave dies

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Middletown school officials learned Saturday of the death of a high school social-studies teacher who was being investigated for possible misconduct.

        Middletown school superintendent Steve Price said school officials learned that teacher Dave Long had died, but had no information about the cause of death.

        Mr. Price said Middletown police and school officials would hold a joint press conference on the situation this afternoon.

        Mr. Long was put on paid leave Thursday so school officials could conduct an investigation into alleged misconduct.

        School officials have refused to comment on the nature of the allegations against Mr. Long.

        Mr. Price said counselors and psychologists would be available to students and employees of Middletown High School when school resumes Monday.

        The superintendent offered condolences to the family of the teacher.

        “This has been a very difficult day for all of us,” Mr. Price said.
