Officials Allege Teacher-Sex Coverup at Helix High

4 teachers convicted of sexual misconduct

Accusations and denials flew Wednesday about whether more cases of improper sexual contact between teachers and students involving Helix Charter High School have taken place than were previously reported.

"The Helix High School board and principal have been stonewalling and covering up," Grossmont Union High School District Trustee Jim Kelly said. "There has been no investigation because they have not cooperated with us, and too much time has gone by -- three months."'

Helix High administrators, however, deny the charges, saying they are politically motivated.

During the past two years, four Helix teachers have been convicted of sexual misconduct with students.The school has imposed stringent ethical guidelines in the wake of calls for suspension of its charter.
