GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -

A West Michigan teacher has been charged with four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct after a police investigation into reports of inappropriate contact involving several male students.

Grand Rapids police say in a release that prosecutors authorized the charges Wednesday against the Grand Rapids University Preparatory Academy teacher.

Authorities are coordinating her arrest with the teacher's attorney. Her name was not released.

A 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy told police Monday they had inappropriate contact with the teacher at multiple locations in the city between March 1 and June 1.

Grand Rapids Public Schools says in a letter to parents that the teacher has been placed on administrative leave and that the district is cooperating with the police investigation.
