Chanhassen, MN- Police arrested 44-year-old Timothy Scott Dorway at his Victoria home Tuesday on suspicion of possessing child pornography.  Dorway is principal of the Chanhassen High School.  The Bureau of Criminal Affairs says charges are pending.

After the BCA executed search warrants at Dorway’s home and at the high school, they arrested him and booked him into the Carver County jail.The BCA said the investigation is active and ongoing, though Dorway has not yet been formally charged.

Saying the news was “a shock to the school and our district,” Eastern Carver County Schools Superintendent Jim Bauck told parents that the allegations do not involve district students.  The District is placing Dorway on administrative leave and is conducting its own investigation.  The Superintendent also has asked that the students not share anything on social media and that Dorway’s family is not involved.

According to MPRNews:

Dorway began his education career in 1995 as an English, journalism and speech teacher at Park High School in Cottage Grove, according to the biography posted on the Chanhassen High website. He’s also served as an assistant high school principal in Owatonna, Minn.

He was principal at Rochester Mayo High School in Rochester, Minn., from 2007 until 2010, when he left to take the Chanhassen job.
