2 Ocoee teachers accused of having sexual relationship with student

Victim's dad speaks with News 6

OCOEE, Fla. – Police are investigating allegations that a student was involved in inappropriate relationships with two teachers at Ocoee High School.

The Department of Children and Families is investigating the report, along with the Ocoee Police Department.

The two teachers were placed on leave Tuesday, officials with Orange County Public Schools told News 6.

The victim’s father said his daughter admitted to having a sexual relationship with two male teachers at her school. He said the first time an incident took place was during a drill when the school was on lockdown, when one of the teachers and the 17-year-old were alone.

The father said there were two other incidents after that, and they happened when the girl stayed after school in a teacher's classroom.

The father said the teen handed over her phone to police for review.

When News 6 spoke to police, officers said they have two suspects in mind, but they’re still actively interviewing people about the case.

Police have not released the teachers’ names.

A recorded phone message was sent to parents letting them know the employees were put on relief of duty.

"As always, Ocoee High School puts the safety of your children first," principal Laura Beusse said in the message. "Please know we are working with law enforcement to assist in any manner."
