A teacher was removed from a North Hollywood middle school classroom yesterday for alleged misconduct.

The employee was a male teacher, according to City News Service, but authorities have not released his name.

The Los Angeles Unified School District sent a letter home to the parents of students at James Madison Middle School to notify them.

"The purpose of this letter is to inform you of an investigation involving alleged misconduct by a school employee who has been removed from campus pending the results of the investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department," the letter stated.
