(WBNG Binghamton) A librarian and tennis coach in a Delaware County school district is put on leave during an investigation of inappropriate sexual conduct with a former student.

The employee is from the Stamford Central School District.

The district says the person is now on paid administrative leave while the investigation into the allegations takes place.

The Delaware County District Attorney's Office is leading the investigation.

The school district is hiring a substitute for the library responsibilities and a former coach for the student tennis team.

In a letter to parents from the Stamford Central School dated March 19, 2013, Katy Graves, superintendent of the Stamford Central School said "I know allegations of this type will be a terrible shock for everyone in our community, and I cannot fully express how saddened we are by these reported allegations. At the same time, I urge everyone not to rush to judgment or speculate about what may or may not have happened. It is up to the authorities to investigate these allegations, and the school district will be fully cooperating in that process."
