(KSL News) -- Police arrested a Provo High School teacher on suspicion of child sex abuse. But school officials are quick to point out, no students are believed to have been victims.

Dan Kaighn was arrested last Thursday on the molestation charges. Kaighn taught special education at Provo High, but today the district put him on administrative leave, with pay, until the investigation is finished.

Kaighn was released from jail on Sunday after posting $20,000 bail.
