Three Triton Regional High School teachers are being investigated by the Camden County Prosecutor's Office for alleged misconduct involving now-former students.

The three teachers were placed on administrative leave at separate times late this summer and earlier in the school year, according to sources.

The now-former students reportedly graduated from Triton in June. The alleged misconduct, however, occurred while the students still attended the Runnemede school.

Patch has confirmed the ongoing investigation with several sources over the past week. The sources requested anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation.

Patch has learned the identities of the three teachers who are being investigated for alleged misconduct, but is withholding their names pending the investigation's outcome.

Camden County Prosecutor's Office spokesman Jason Laughlin declined to comment for this report. He previously indicated he could not confirm or deny the existence of the investigation.

Triton is part of the Black Horse Pike Regional School District. The school draws students from three Camden County towns: Bellmawr, Gloucester Township and Runnemede. About 1,600 students attend Triton.

Gloucester Township Police Department has not been involved in the investigation.

A message left for Black Horse Pike Regional School District Superintendent John Golden on Wednesday morning was not returned. Like Laughlin, he previously declined to confirm or deny the existence of the investigation.
