Mr. Karling Aguilera-Fort, Superintendent of El Rancho Unified School District, released the following statement:
“Recently, an employee at El Rancho High School was accused of inappropriate behavior. Consistent with District policy, the employee was suspended immediately thereafter, precluding any contact with students. El Rancho Unified School District staff investigated and reported the accusation to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, whose personnel have also investigated. Following the investigation, the employee was terminated from employment with the District.
“Student safety is El Rancho Unified School District’s top operational priority, and effective and transparent communication with our parents and community stakeholders is critical to maintaining it. At no point did I, or any member of the Board of Education, direct staff to keep pertinent information from parents. Parents should rest assured that El Rancho Unified School District is, has been, and will be completely transparent when it comes to information that keeps our students safe. Although we generally cannot comment on the specifics of personnel matters, I encourage any parent who has questions to contact the Superintendent’s Office directly at (562) 801-7300."
