2 more Central Catholic High School employees accused of misconduct with students


LAWRENCE, Mass. — Two more staff members at Central Catholic High School have been placed on leave only a few days after the school fired its assistant principal over rape allegations.

Central Catholic High School officials said Thursday that they have found more incidents of alleged misconduct against other staffers while investigating allegations against former administrator Andrew Nikonchuck.

A spokesman for the school says a former student alleges he was drugged and raped by the administrator in 2006.

An investigation into the allegation reportedly found that in one case, a staff member allegedly posted compromising photos of himself on an adults-only website. A second staff member allegedly sent inappropriate messages through social media to a student who graduated in 2016.
