Gilroy police are investigating reports that a Gilroy High School teacher allegedly pushed and slapped at least three of her students in the past two weeks.

The teacher, whose name is being withheld while police conduct their investigation, is suspected of battery after police received a report by the parent of a victim student.

The three incidents are alleged to have taken place on Oct. 9, Oct. 13 and Oct. 16 at the high school at 750 W. 10th St., according to police.

The three students who allegedly were pushed or slapped are a 14-year-old girl, 15-year-old boy, and 16-year-old girl, police said.

The Gilroy Unified School District is cooperating with police, and the investigation will be sent to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office to determine whether charges will be filed against the suspect.
