WEAKLEY COUNTY, TN - A local teacher has been dismissed by the school board after being charged with providing drugs and alcohol to students.

WCMT is reporting that 30 year-old Ryan Burke was dismissed tonight by the Weakley County School Board. Investigators said the former Gleason County High School teacher invited four students over to his home, where he gave them alcohol and marijuana.

He was arrested and charged last month. Police say the most recent time Burke gave drugs to students was last Christmas Eve.
