OPRF High School teacher fired over ‘inappropriate’ contact with students

OAK PARK, Ill. — A suburban school board fired a teacher for engaging in an “inappropriate” relationship and contact with students.

Timothy Fischer was a tenured history teacher and assistant football coach at Oak Park and River Forest High School. He was dismissed with an unanimous vote during a meeting on Oct. 24.

Administrators put him on leave in September.

“On October 24, 2019, the District 200 Board of Education approved a resolution to dismiss tenured faculty member Timothy Fischer based on an inappropriate relationship and conduct with District students,” district spokeswoman Karin Sullivan said.

The teacher has not been charged with a crime.
