BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- The Belfield Public School Board has scheduled a hearing next month over allegations of questionable practices by the town's high school principal.
The board last month suspended Jeffrey Lamprecht without pay.
A state Bureau of Criminal Investigation report says a female student told staff that Lamprecht had been asking her for several months to come to his office to talk for extended periods of time during the school day. He allegedly gave her dietary pills and took a photo of her without consent.
BCI investigators say they considered the behavior ''criminal in nature'' but that it would be best handled by the school.
Lamprecht told investigators he was only looking out for the well-being of his students.
