An Agriculture and Science Early College teacher has been suspended by Iredell-Statesville Schools pending the completion of a criminal investigation by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.

Elizabeth L. Wright, a math teacher at ASEC, was suspended with pay on Thursday, August 13, the school district announced in a news release on Friday. The early college program is located on the campus of North Iredell High School.

Wright, who has worked for I-SS since 2012, taught math at North Iredell Middle School from 2012-2017.
