Statement of the El Rancho Unified School District

National attention has focused on anti-American military statements allegedly made by a teacher hired at El Rancho High School. The District has stepped forward to conduct a full and complete investigation into our professional standards which mandate that the values of students, their parents, and other family members are to be respected in the classroom at all times.

The City of Pico Rivera was founded 60 years ago by veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States of America who purchased affordable housing in the area in the aftermath of World War II. The values of these valiant men and women are deeply rooted in the community and in the El Rancho Unified School District. Indeed, many individual Board Members, administrators and staff of the District are themselves members of military and veteran families.

Another important ERUSD value, one which our veterans have valiantly fought for, is that every person is entitled to due process. The District is already in the process of conducting a complete and timely investigation, and the law will be followed in every respect. The District’s commitment to transparency is subject only to the laws protecting the privacy of its employees. In the spirit of transparency, the District wants to answer these questions frequently asked by concerned people:

“Why doesn’t the District just fire the guy?”
Due process requires the District to investigate the facts, decide what action, if any, should be taken based on those facts, and use procedures set forth in law and contract before imposing any discipline. We are already deeply engaged in that process.

“ Why is the teacher suspended with pay?”
Suspension with pay is mandated by law at this point.

“Will the Board of Education hire an attorney to defend him?”
Absolutely not. The District has rules and procedures in place and will follow the protocols required by law. The District’s new legal team is leading the way in this process.

This morning our District is the center of attention over a video on social media where one of our teachers appears to disrespect the family values of our students and families in the classroom. Our classrooms are not the appropriate place for one-sided discussions that undermine the values our families hold dear. We are investigating. We will find out exactly what happened and take all appropriate action to ensure that the values of our students and families are respected in our schools. The El Rancho Unified School District is committed to providing all of our students a safe, nurturing and respectful educational environment in which they can strive and succeed.
