EXETER - Additional allegations of misconduct at Phillips Exeter Academy surfaced Tuesday.
Exeter police say that the prep school has turned over "a number of pieces of information" regarding misconduct at various times and locations. Police did not provide any details about the nature of the alleged misconduct.
Police say they are at the "beginning stages" of a thorough investigation.
The news arrives shortly after the school came clean about a former teacher, Richard Schubert, who admitted to sexual misconduct involving two female students years ago.
After admitting to sexual misconduct, Schubart was required by Governor Maggie Hassan’s husband, Tom Hassan, who was principal of Phillips Exeter Academy at the time, to retire and remove himself from campus housing. But the instructor was able to keep his emeritus status with the prestigious boarding academy.
But Schubart ended up on a steering committee for Hassan's 2012 gubernatorial campaign and had made a donation.
Schubart was eventually barred from campus and lost his title of teacher emeritus in 2015, after the second victim came forward.
Hassan issued a statement Tuesday after the new allegations surfaced.
"Any allegations must be thoroughly investigated by law enforcement and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. My heart continues to go out to the victims and to the entire Phillips Exeter Academy community," she said.
