A culinary arts teacher at the Essex North Shore Agricultural & Technical High School in Danvers was arrested this afternoon on sexual assault charges.

The matter is still under investigation by the Danvers Police Department and the Essex County District Attorney’s Office. For that reason, no further information will be released at this time.
