MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) -

A Middletown City Schools teacher has resigned after being accused of inappropriate behavior. 

According to a police report, the teacher being accused works at the middle school.

The report shows that a student approached the vice principal at the high school wanting to report "inappropriate behavior" by a teacher. 

The school resource officer launched an investigation.

According to police, the victims are at least 18-years-old. 

Police said since the teacher is in a position of authority over the students, so it it illegal under the Ohio Revised Code.

The teacher is accused of texting with female students, and police believe that at some point, he allegedly had sexual contact with the students

“The most nefarious part of it is that he seems to have groomed these students with questionable text conversations waiting for them to turn 18," police said. 

Middletown Superintendent Marlon Styles said it’s a personnel matter and he is “not at liberty to discuss at this time.”

He said the district’s focus is on "keeping kids safe.”
