Somers High School Teacher Placed on Leave

A Somers High School science teacher has been placed on administrative leave.

A letter the superintendent of schools in Somers sent to Jim Folger, of Enfield, on June 15 said he was being placed on leave indefinitely pending an investigation into allegations including unprofessional conduct in the classroom and unprofessional conduct directed toward staff.

He was ordered to refrain from attending school functions, visiting school grounds unless the administration instructs him to and communicating with staff members other than administration. He was also instructed to refrain from contact with students.

NBC Connecticut attempt to reach Folger for comment have been unsuccessful.
