Edina High School teacher on leave in wake of criminal investigation

- An Edina High School social studies teacher is on administrative leave in the wake of a criminal investigation, according to the school's principal.

In an email sent to students' families, Principal Andy Beaton called it an "unfortunate personnel situation." He explained a search warrant has been issued in connection to Joel Nasset, but did not go into further detail due to data privacy laws. Both law enforcement and Edina Public Schools are completing investigations. 

Nasset is still employed by the district, but will not be teaching classes or attending school events. His status with the district will be determined once the district completes its investigation.

"We understand that any such news about a district employee is unsettling," wrote Beaton. "We take any allegation against our staff seriously and remain committed to providing safe, enriching learning environment for all students."
