A Sewickley Academy teacher has been fired amidst an FBI Violent Crimes Against Children Task Force investigation, officials said.

The teacher, who has not been charged, was fired Friday, school spokeswoman Mandi Semple said on Monday.

In a statement, school officials said the teacher violated Sewickley Academy's code of employee behavior.

Officials from the Edgeworth private school contacted the Allegheny County District Attorney's office, spokesman Mike Manko said.

“Administrators at Sewickley Academy recently referred a matter concerning a staff member to the FBI Violent Crimes Against Children Task Force, of which our office is a member,” Manko said in an email. “We are in the process of reviewing certain materials provided to the task force by the school administration.”

Sewickley Academy is a private school with about 700 students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
