Billings School District 2 will ask the Montana Board of Public Education to decide if a local teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student should lose his license.

Trustees voted unanimously at a special meeting Monday night to forward an investigation into Senior High teacher Stacey Rambold to the state board.

The internal investigation, conducted by a retired school administrator, found that it is "more likely than not" that Rambold had a monthslong sexual relationship with a freshman girl during the 2007-08 school year.

The "more likely than not" standard is the benchmark used in cases of alleged misconduct to determine whether a teacher should be disciplined.

It is a lower standard than would be required in a criminal case. A separate criminal investigation into Rambold by the Billings Police Department is ongoing.
