Sweetwater Union High School District officials were not questioned about the investigation into alleged sex crimes by an instructor, a tutor and a coach at the same high school when the board met with parents and community members Monday.
The Sweetwater Union High School Board met Monday night for the first time since the arrests of several staff members at Mar Vista High School.
Three adults with jobs that involved interacting with high school students, were arrested within days of each other. Each man is accused of sex crimes involving minors. Each has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
A 48-year-old former Navy Junior ROTC instructor who served as a substitute is accused of having a relationship with a female high school student.
An assistant football coach, 27, is accused of committing lewd acts with a 13-year-old freshman female on school property, according to the criminal complaint.
In the third case, a 20-year-old tutor is accused of sex crimes with a minor.
NBC 7 learned Monday that a fourth employee, an instructor with the NJROTC, was pulled from the classroom and placed on administrative leave.
The district also removed classroom computers as part of their internal investigation.
The new personnel matter does not involve an accusation of sex crimes with a minor according to the district. That is something the San Diego County Sheriff's Department verified as well.
However district officials did not release what prompted the employee to be placed on leave.
The board opened the floor to members of the public to weigh in, and the result was a bit unexpected.
Like every school board meeting, board members held a public comment period.
Plenty of people got up and spoke, but no parent or community member said anything about the series of recent arrests at Mar Vista High School.
Board members and school district officials refused to comment about the sex scandal involving the Imperial Beach high school saying it was an active investigation.
