Skocik has worked for the school system since July as an information technology specialist, according to a district spokesperson.
Police say the allegations involve inappropriate touching.
“I don’t believe there was any removal of clothing or anything like that,” said Sgt. Jonathan Perok. “I believe it was all about inappropriate areas on the clothes.”
Perok said police began investigating on April 6. The school district said that “upon learning of the allegations, (Skocik) was immediately expelled from the school building.”
“Three of the four victims came forward to one of their teachers to report it,” he said.

Perok said Skocik helps students with computers and tablets and has his own office, where the girls say the assaults took place.
“I was also told that he would allow students during downtime to come and play video games and things like that in his office,” Perok said.
The school sent a letter to parents on Friday.
