Meridian physical education teacher Dean Reid was told not to report to work at Carver Middle School Wednesday.
The decision came the day after Reid was charged with possession of marijuana and manufacturing marijuana.
Agents of the East Mississippi Drug Task Force raided his home over the weekend.
"He was a very good teacher for us. With this being a personnel matter, we cannot discuss it at this time and we will follow policy, the School Board policy," said Deputy Superintendent Robert Markham.
Markham said a decision should be made later this week regarding Reid's job with the School District.
