FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- An area high school mentor has been banned from Fort Wayne Community Schools property, pending an investigation into allegations he had inapprorpiate relationships with a female North Side High School student.

Damion Jackson, 33, of Fort Wayne, is an instructor for the Jobs For America's Graduates classes at North Side. Jackson was not a FWCS employee, but a JAG specialist contracted out by WorkOne.

JAG is a mentor program that operates out of local high schools across the country preparing juniors and seniors for life after high school. JAG is part of the curriculum at Huntington North, New Haven, Northrop, Snider, South Side and Wayne high schools in Northeast Indiana.

Jackson has not been charged, so far; and police have not released details into the investigation.
