Howell Public Schools was notified by the Michigan State Police that Duane Millar, a Howell High School teacher and coach, was arraigned in the 54B District Court in Ingham County on one count of possession of child sexually abusive material (possession of child pornography) and one count of using a computer to commit a crime, following an investigation by the Michigan State Police Computer Crimes Unit and Michigan Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Mr. Millar has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation.

At this time, the Michigan State Police do not believe that any Howell Public Schools students are involved in this situation or that any inappropriate materials were accessed on district property or using the district network or devices. Anyone with information that may be relevant to the investigation is asked to contact Detective Lt. Jay Poupard of the Michigan State Police at 1-877-MI-CYBER.

“The safety and well-being of our students is of the utmost importance to our district. We are deeply concerned by the charges brought against Mr. Millar and will continue to cooperate with the Michigan State Police as they complete their investigation,” said Erin MacGregor, Howell Public Schools superintendent.

In light of the district’s scheduled Spring Break next week, the district will have a counselor available Monday, March 28, at the district administrative offices.

The district has issued a parent communication via email and posted the parent letter on its website.
