A Montana school administrator has been placed on leave following an inappropriate text message sent to a former student. Anaconda Police Chief Tim Barkel has confirmed to MTN News that his office was following up on a report that Anaconda High School principal Shawn Hansen had text messaged a 19-year-old former student. Chief Barkel says Hansen sent the young man a text asking him out on a date, but since both parties are adults, it’s not a criminal matter.
