GRAND PRAIRIE (CBSDFW) – A local high school teacher is under arrest, accused of having an improper relationship with a student.

Grand Prairie ISD says 23-year-old algebra teacher Derek Fuller was arrested after a months long investigation into his alleged relationship with a student. It’s unknown how old the student is.

Fuller was a first year teacher at Grand Prairie High school.

Sam Buckmeyer with the Grand Prairie ISD says school officials got word of the alleged relationship at the end of January, and took Fuller out of the classroom the very next day.

“He has not been in the classroom since that time” says Buckmeyer. “Law enforcement was immediately notified, they opened an investigation and that of course resulted in Thursday’s arrest.”

Buckmeyer says Fuller has also been reported to the Texas Education Agency.
