NORWICH, Conn. (AP) - The director of campus safety for a Connecticut high school has been arrested on allegations that he failed to report an inappropriate relationship between a coach and a student. 
Police say Kevin Rodino was charged Monday with failure to report suspected child abuse and other offenses. He was been released on a $500 nonsurety bond and is expected to appear in court next week. 
Rodino was placed on leave by Norwich Free Academy last month.

A school spokesman didn't immediately return a phone message and it wasn't immediately clear whether Rodino has a lawyer.
Rodino is accused of failing to report a relationship that Coach Anthony Facchini was accused of having with a female student.

Facchini was arrested in September on allegations that he had sexual relations with two students.
Facchini has pleaded not guilty.
