An Elk Island Public School (EIPS) division teacher has been charged with sexual offences relating to a female student.
Strathcona County RCMP received a complaint in early July and have laid four charges against 32-year-old Graeme Forsyth.
Forsyth has been charged with sexual interference, sexual exploitation, invitation to sexual touching and sexual assault.
The offences reportedly took place sometime between May 1 and September 1, 2015.
EIPS administration conducted an investigation into these allegations. As a result, steps were taken to ensure the teacher was no longer in a position to interact with students.
The female victim and her family are currently being offered support from the Strathcona County Victim Services Unit.
Police are encouraging anyone with information to come forward and contact the Strathcona County RCMP at 780-467-7741 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Forsyth has been released on a recognizance with several conditions and is scheduled to appear in Sherwood Park Provincial Court on August 30.
