Former Granite Hills HS Teacher Accused of Misconduct

A former Granite Hills High School teacher has been accused of misconduct, according to the Grossmont Union High School District. 

Ral Christman resigned Monday, April 30, 10 days after he was placed on administrative leave, according to the district. 

District officials did not release details regarding the misconduct or when they were first made aware of the allegations, but a source told NBC 7 Christman faces allegations of sexting with a 17-year-old student.

“I feel it would be wrong that would be sexting, but I don’t have him personally as a teacher but, I’ve only heard good things about him so if it’s true it's weird," student Courtney Williams said.

On a Facebook post, Christman wrote he was leaving to continue his teaching at Kumeyaay Community College, San Diego State University and Cuyamaca Community College.

He ended the post by saying “With everything going on, this has been a super hard week, but I have faith. I am still learning. Thus forgive my indiscretions . . and may I never be obsolete. Eyaay Ehun.”

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department is handling the investigation.

A spokesperson released the following statement: 

"The Family Protection Unit of the Sheriff's Department has received a report related to allegations of misconduct by a former Grossmont Union High School District employee. We are conducting an investigation into the allegations but do not have any additional details about the investigation to release at this time."

NBC 7 was unable to make contact with Christman for comment. His Facebook account has since been deleted.

SDSU officials said the university does not comment on its employees and no one from Kumeyaay Community College was available for comment.

More than 2,000 students are enrolled in Granite Hills High School which is located on East Madison Avenue in El Cajon.
