http://www.q13fox.com/news/ktla-hayd...,5779108.storyThe Oxnard School District will meet Wednesday night, after a middle school teacher was put on administrative leave, accused of appearing in at least one pornographic film.
District officials have not released the teacher's name and they have not terminated her.
They placed her on leave on Monday while they investigate the allegations, Oxnard School District Superintendent Jeff Chancer told KTLA Tuesday.
The investigation began Friday when students approached administrators at Richard B. Haydock Intermediate School and told them they had seen a female teacher in a pornographic video.
Administrators tried to verify the students' claims, but couldn't because the school's computers have filters on them that prevent access to sites featuring pornographic material, Chancer said.
So administrators put out a memo to school staff, acknowledging the students' claims, but saying they were only a rumor.
That's when some other teachers came forward and showed administrators the video on a smartphone, allowing them to tentatively confirm that the accused educator -- who teaches science to 7th and 8th-graders at Haydock -- appeared in the X-rated video, Chancer said.
"Maybe it's not a crime as far as the penal code is concerned, but we feel it's a crime as far as moral turpitude is concerned," Chancer said.
http://www.keyt.com/news/local/ventu...141683133.htmlA letter was sent home with students at all the middle schools written by Chancer:
"Since the allegation surfaced, the information has spread quickly throughout the district. We are concerned that students may attempt to view or access inappropriate sites and possibly attempt to post links to pornographic material on their Facebook site and other social media sites. We are asking teachers to discourage the children from searching for and/or visiting these inappropriate sites. We ask that you be particularly vigilant over the next few days with respect to the Internet content being accessed by your child on his or her telephone or other Internet-ready devices."

“School is supposed to be a safe place. Now, you think twice because you never know what is going to happen,” Sanchez said.
Poor Mr. Sanchez. It's not the teacher he has to worry about. Being a porn star does not make school an unsafe place. It was OTHER STUDENTS that were viewing the porn.
The school doesn't want the kids to see the teacher in porn and asks parents to carefully monitor them in the next few days. I guess after the hub-bub dies down, they can go back to their non-teacher-involved porn viewing.
It may be a "moral turpitude" issue for a teacher (IMO) but all this posturing is a bit silly.
