Former student allegations added to investigation of Jackson-Milton teacher

Posted: Updated:
MILTON TOWNSHIP, Ohio -

A Jackson-Milton High School math teacher under investigation for allegedly sending inappropriate texts to a 14-year-old student and two former students has been suspended.

School superintendent Kirk Baker tells 21 News that there is an ongoing internal investigation and the Mahoning County Sheriffs Office is also conducting their investigation into allegations made by a current 14-year-old student and two former students against teacher Greg Domino.

21 News reported Tuesday that the 14-year-old girl said questionable texts allegedly sent to her by Domino.  Baker told 21 News that he doesn't know the nature of the allegations made by the former students. 

A letter from superintendent Baker sent to Domino informs the 36-year-old teacher that the investigation involves allegations that Domino “engaged in inappropriate social media communication with students and former students of the Jackson-Milton Local School District.”

Superintendent Baker said that Domino, who lives in Mineral Ridge, has been relieved of his duties pending the outcome of the investigation. Domino, who is not assigned to any duties at the school during the summer break, is suspended with pay.

The mother of a 14-year-old girl contacted the school resource officer last week after her daughter said she had been exchanging private messages with Domino through the online game “Trivia Crack.”

According to the report, the teacher allegedly sent the following messages to the girl:

"Learn your lesson.. any guy would be lucky to be with you, including me."

"Alright hun, I've spent all day talking and playing with you, I think it's time I get ready for bed."

"you took a little time to grow on me.. now I feel attached"

"You'll make friends easily... those black boys will be drooling over you"

According to the report, the teen did not feel there was a need to report the messages until she showed them to her friends. It was only then that she became concerned.

The report said that the student did not fear for her safety.

Board of Education records show that Domino was hired as “Quiz Bowl” adviser during the 2017-2018 school year.

Domino's suspension will stay in effect if the investigation is still going on when classes resume this fall.

Baker ordered Domino to turn in his district keys, laptop, electronic devices, and any other school property.

The letter from Baker instructs Domino to refrain from discussing the matter with any students, parents, or fellow employees.

Domino is prohibited from entering school property without Baker's permission.
