A teacher and tennis coach at Mendota Height's Henry Sibley High School has been placed on leave amid an investigation by school officials and police.

The West St. Paul–Mendota Heights–Eagan Area School District confirmed to BMTN it had placed Corey Prondzinski on paid administrative leave after receiving a complaint against him, immediately launching an investigation in the process.

The Pioneer Press reports that the Mendota Heights Police Department is also involved, confirming it's investigating what it called a report of "suspicious activity."

No further details about the investigation has been revealed, with the school district citing the Data Practices Act as its reason for not revealing more information about the complaint.

According to his bio, Prondzinski has taught math and coached boy's varsity tennis at the school district for 17 years.

He previously graduated with a Master's in education from St. Mary's University, having gotten his Bachelor's degree in mathematics from Winona State University.
