A female teacher at Sherwood High School is under investigation, amid allegations involving at least one student.
Washington County deputies confirmed to FOX 12 Friday that they became involved in the case about a week ago.
At this point, investigators have not released any details about the allegations against the teacher.
The teacher has not been arrested or charged with any crime.
The Sherwood School District issued a press release Friday, saying it has "removed the teacher from the school" during the pendency of an investigation.
She is on administrative leave and the district has filed a report with the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission.
