BNL Teacher Placed On Paid Leave

Last updated on Friday, March 18, 2011

(BEDFORD, IN) - Bedford North Lawrence English teacher Brian Hawkins has been formally placed on paid administrative leave.

The leave follows the posting of an I-STEP question on Facebook.

Officials say that action by the Indiana Department of Education could follow due to the fact that the leak caused the state to invalidate the question for more than 83,000 exams.

On March 10th, Clay Community School officials suspended a teacher accused of helping spread the I-STEP question.
